Demand for French and German courses increases as borders open | Bangalore News

BENGALURU: Prathima, a software professional, has decided to start taking French classes next month because she believes it will increase her chances of getting a seat at a Canadian university next year. With countries slowly reopening their borders, the prospect of studying abroad looks bright.
“I hope Canada will allow direct flights from India by then,” Prathima said. “I have applied to some universities in Quebec for the winter 2022 re-entry and I will apply to a few others for the fall re-entry next year. Knowing French will open up opportunities for me.
The southern Bengaluru resident said she had postponed plans to start French lessons since January. “I canceled my plan to apply in 2020, but now is a good time to start learning the language,” she said.
Like Prathima, several students and even professionals flood the centers in Bengaluru to learn new languages. Coaching centers say French, Spanish, German and Japanese lessons are in high demand.
Suraj Jain, who works for a multinational, started learning German last week, hoping to join his team in Germany. “The coaching center started regular classes and I joined the first class. I hope there will be no more blockages, ”Jain said.
Zafer Mohiuddin, of the Alliance Française in Bangalore, said enrollment in French classes had increased. “After the restrictions are lifted, many adolescents and young people are reaching out to join classes,” he said.
Jyothi Venkatesh, president of the Center for Global Languages ​​at the University of the City of Bengaluru, said during the second wave that the situation reached a low for both students and coaching centers.
