Nothing wrong with a French degree Reenita but I think you will find Spanish is more use. The reason being is it is spoken almost as widely as English and an easy follow up from French if you desire since both are romance languages. In addition if you speak Spanish Italian grammar is similar and you will soon understand Italian. I once had a Spanish landlady from the Galician region of Spain and since her local dialect was Gallego she could understand both Portuguese and Italian without difficulty.
To return to the topic of French; try to remember is doesn't have the international advantages it used to despite the protest (if that is the right word) of native French speakers. All the same still very useful to flight attendants - will PM you about sorry about the delay.
