    Learning French will offer you the opportunity to discover a Latin language. French is indeed a Romance language. Although there are many French regional accents, only one version of the language is normally chosen as a model for foreign students: the Français neutre. French grammar shares several rules with most other Romance languages. The majority of French vocabulary derives from Vulgar Latin or was constructed from Latin or Greek roots. There are often pairs of words, one form being popular (noun) and the other one savant (adjective), both originating from Latin. French uses the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet.
