According to the French mayor, use of English language should be discarded after Brexit. This language is among the 24 official languages spoken in the EU.
But, the mayor believes that the language, no more holds legitimacy after Britain voted to exit the EU
English is also one of the major languages that are used to conduct business.
Further, Jean-Luc Mélenchon (left-wing presidential candidate), said the language can no longer hold the status of the 3rd working language of the European Parliament.
As per a report, almost 51% of citizens in EU speak English as their first or second language. However, only a third could speak German language and a quarter could speak the French language.
Reports further say that despite of the vote for exit, it seems that discarding English language altogether in Brussels is not likely to happen. This is because it is the official language of Malta and Ireland.
A report in 2013 stated that English language squeezed other languages, in order to become the common language of Europe.
Further, it was also revealed that almost two out of three people have a fair working knowledge of English language.
According to the French mayor, use of English language should be discarded after Brexit from EU, as it no longer remains legitimate after the exit vote.
