Parisians to become fluent in English

Parisians to become fluent in English - Former French government spokesman and confident of the president Benjamin Griveaux has made a pledge to make Parisians fluent in English as part of his campaign to become mayor of Paris. Speaking to French media Griveaux said it was deplorable that “Paris is a global city where we speak English badly, when it is an essential language to travel and work. Griveaux, wants to introduce English in nurseries and get schools to organise extra-curricular activities in English. Mr Griveaux, an MP for Mr Macron’s La République En Marche (LREM) party, is the president’s favoured candidate for the mayoral election due in March.
