    Cool as first foreign language

    Hello!

    Is this sentence grammatically correct, please?

    "In France, we usually learn English as first foreign language".

    Thank you
    Will

    Yes. It's OK, but I would use "a" (among many possible) or "the" (as primary).

    Re: as first foreign language

    As you have used "we" you could also use "as our first foreign language".
