Le français des affaires - French for Business

Representing the interests of more than 800 000 French companies, the Paris Île-de-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) is convinced that being able to work in several languages is a precious added value for individuals, executives and companies.

French is spoken by 274 million people in the world, it is the 2nd language learnt and the 3rd language used for business purposes. Considering the demographic and economic growth of French speaking areas, these figures will definitely increase in the coming years.

Through its service French for Business, the CCI Paris Île-de-France is promoting French as a main business language. It especially created in 1958 the Business French Diplomas to assess the ability of professionals to use French in their working field.

40 000 individuals take each year the French language evaluation test (TEF) and Business French Diplomas thanks to a network of 500 accredited centers in 150 countries. 1 500 French teachers benefit from its online and on-site trainings for professional purposes.
