4The oldest French words ever recorded were written in 842 AD Les Serments de Strasbourg, an oath sworn by Charles the Bald and Louis the German against their brother.
5English has borrowed many words from French. Approximately ⅓ to ½ of English words come from French (the word surf for example).
6French is the official language in France, Haiti, Luxembourg and 15 African countries.
It means that you can visit many African countries and practice your French there!
