Speaking a language is about connection, not perfection.
A lot of people have this question in mind: Why learn another language? If you are at all curious about the world beyond your own day to day routine, speaking french (or any other language besides your native tongue) can upgrade your life by increasing opportunities for career, living, travel, adventure, friendship and love. The more languages you speak, the bigger your world becomes.
You can learn to speak another language, no matter your age or educational background; maybe you will never be mistaken for a native speaker but you will be able to communicate and that is what languages are for. Remember speaking a language is about connection,not perfection.
