French is a Romance language of the Indo-European family. It descended from the Vulgar Latin of the Roman Empire, as did all Romance languages. French has evolved from Gallo-Romance, the spoken Latin in Gaul, and more specifically in Northern Gaul. It is spoken by about 338 million people. It is the third most spoken language in Europe, after German and English, and is also spoken in parts of Africa, North America, South America, Asia and Oceania. French is an official language in 29 countries, most of which are members of the francophone, the community of French-speaking countries.

French was widely used as a diplomatic language from the 17th century until the middle of the 20th century, when English replaced it in that role. It is still used in many international organizations, such as NATO, the UN, EU institutions, and the World Trade Organization.

French first appeared in writing in 842 AD when it was used in the Strasbourg Oaths. Before then Latin, was the language used for literature throughout Europe. During the 10th and 11th centuries, French appeared in a number of documents and religious, writings, but French literature didn’t start to take off until the late 12th - early 13th century. The first great work of French literature was the “Chanson de Roland” (Song of Roland), which was published, in about 1200.
