French is an international language and one of the significant modern foreign languages since France and French-speaking countries play an important role in the world’s societies, economy, politics and technology. Thus, French proficiency and the understanding of France’s perspectives, philosophy of life, art and culture can improve French learning and encourage comparative study which can be appropriately adjusted and applied in circumstances in Thailand.
