Simple Facts about French
French is an official language in 29 countries and spoken as a first language in France and various French communities in many countries. Including the second language speakers, there are more than 300 million French speakers worldwide. The number of French speakers has been growing quickly and will reach approximately 500 million in 2025.
Like many other languages, there are many French dialects spoken by French communities in different areas. French has 16 vowels, but not all of them are used in every dialect. Even though different dialects have their own rules of pronunciations, the standard rules still apply. For example, final single consonants, such as s, x, and z, should be silent. Final letters, such as c, f, k, q and I, should be pronounced.
The written system of French consists of 26 Latin letters, with 4 diacritics on vowels, the cedilla in ⟨ç⟩ and 2 ligatures, ⟨œ⟩ and ⟨æ⟩.
