In my opinion, fluent French is the mark of an antiquated education. I speak multiple languages and read several more, and I have found French to be pretty worthless. Fluent English is far more valuable on a world market. Unfortunately, few people are able to actually form coherent thoughts, let alone elocute such in English. Depending on what I'm trying to convey, I find different languages as superior. For example, English is very good at technical interchange, whereas it communicates emotion like a dungeon and dragons master. I've found Spanish to be far better at expressing emotions, but it is not efficient and requires more words. Arabic and other similar languages are actually very adept at expressing complex thoughts in a very compact way. But French is just overly flowery and fluffy - best suited for making those that speak it feel somehow superior. The mark of a good education is not about what you know, it's about how you use it.
