French is not only the official language of France but also of 29 countries. As a result of French and Belgian colonialism during the 17th and 20th centuries, French was introduced to colonies in the Americas, Africa and Asia. Most second language speakers reside in Francophone Africa, in particular Gabon, Algeria, Mauritius, Senegal and Côte d'Ivoire. French is estimated to have about 73.8 million native speakers, and including native speakers, there are around 338 million people that are able to speak it. According to a demographic projection total French speakers will number approximately 500 million people in 2025 and 650 million people by 2050. It is an official language of many international organisations including the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, the WTO and the ICRC. In 2011, French was deemed by Bloomberg Businessweek to be one of the top three most useful languages for business, behind English and Chinese.
