French should be instated as the sole working language of the European Union instead of English because of Brexit, according to a plot prepared by almost 40 French MPs.
French was once the dominant language in the corridors of power in Brussels but English is now effectively the lingua franca.
That shift was accelerated by the accession of Eastern European countries to the bloc in 2004 and entrenched by the fact that many people speak English as a second language.
Only folks who speak French would be able to work there. That’s going to increase the talent pool they can draw from, isn’t it?
