Which nations use French as their first language?
France is the most obvious answer. However, Africa actually has more French speaking people than any other continent in the world. There are twenty-nine countries worldwide with French as an official language. Out of these twenty-nine, twenty-one of them are in Africa.
The twenty-nine countries with French as an official language are:

If you are asking what the most commonly spoken first language is in U.S. homes, it's English. If you are asking what the first language spoken in North America was, no one kn…ows, because the first Americans didn't have a writing system.
The French and the first nations did get along but it was hard because they all spoke different languages but they did trade for many stuff.
The United States does not have an official language. However several states have made English their official language. Some states have made other languages official as w…ell, like French in Louisiana and Hawaiian in Hawaii. The most common language spoken in the U.S., and the language of the U.S. Constitution and of most government activity, is English. English is the only language spoken at home in about 80% of U.S. households and is spoken by about 95% of the population. Spanish is the next most widely used language, spoken by about 4% of the population. French, the third highest, is spoken by about 3% of the population. There have been several attempts to amend the Constitution to adopt English as the official language of the U.S., but as yet none have succeeded.
No one knows. There are a number of linguists who theorize that some form of sign language preceded the use of spoken language in the evolution of humans. Like spoken lan…guages, there are many sign languages. What we know of today as American Sign Language (ASL) has its roots in France. Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet went to Europe to study methods of educating the deaf. He came back with a teacher, Laurent Clerc, from the Paris school for the deaf. Together, they established the first permanent school for the deaf in Hartford, Connecticut in 1817. Soon afterwards, signs from an already established Deaf community in Martha's Vineyard mixed with the French Sign Language, home-signs, and gestures to become what we now know as American Sign Language or, ASL. ASL is used predominately in the U.S. and the English speaking provinces of Canada. Like English, ASL's influence can also be seen in many places around the world. The first recorded sign language for the deaf was developed in the 18th cent. by the French abbé Charles Michel de l'Épée. His system (French Sign Language, or FSL) is still used in France. Laurent Clerc studied at de l'Épée's school.
20% - 25% of the population speak French as their native tongue. 0.3% of Canadians who speak English as their native toungue learn French. 75%- 85% of the population speak… English whether they learned it as a Francophone or if English was their native language.
No one really knows that, however, almost everything in the English language including the English alphabet has some letters that are in the Greek alphabet. It also might be A…rabic because people started using it since time began! Some Jewish clerics claim the Hebrew is the oldest language. Second answer No one knows what the first language was, but it probably consisted of grunts, hisses, whistles, and any of the forty odd sounds the human mouth can make in addition to body and rudimentary sign language. for support of this we can look at the other animals that use verbal and physical communication. Coyotes for example have forty different barks and howls they use to communicate. We know that Chimps and higher primates use sound and movement to communicate. The most complex language on Earth isn't even made by a human tongue; it is the song of the humpback whale. Two of the most complex human languages are Navajo and Hopi (it's been said that you could describe nuclear physics in Hopi and it would be easier to understand and the explanation would be more complete than is possible in English), and both have roots that go back anywhere from 1000 to 30,000 years (depending on the particular anthropologist you ask). Hebrew and Aramaic can be traced back perhaps 5000-8000 years. Sumerian is older than that. Proto-Canaanite is one of the earliest known written languages, and that goes back only 3500 years. The pictographs of PC give solid indication there may have been earlier written forms, but we have not discovered examples yet. The vast majority of linguists for the past 100 years concur that Proto-Indo-European is the parent language of the majority of languages today. While there is no conclusive proof that PIE existed, the vast amount of circumstantial evidence is accepted as proof, and researchers have been able to reconstruct much of it. Third answer The very first human language was most likely gestural in nature. This is because chimps, our closest genetic cousins, communicate more through visual and tactile cues like facial expressions, hand and body gestures, and bodily contact than they do with vocalizations. The area of the brain that controls hand gestures also controls the tongue. Young autistic children who cannot speak have gained the ability after learning American Sign Language. People born with a mutated version of FOXP2, the gene in the brain associated with speech, have problems talking because they do not have proper control of their tongues and mouth muscles. This gene is believed to have come about 50,000 years ago, which would have allowed humans to finally talk. For a more detailed description, see the related question below. See also the book Next of Kin (1997) by Roger Fouts. The very first spoken human language was most likely a click language akin to that spoken by the !Kung San of Africa (! = click). This is because the language is so unlike anything else spoke in the world, which points to its antiquity. Also, the !Kung people have the oldest genetic strain of human DNA in the world. There is no need for me to talk about Proto-Indo-European as it has been covered above. For more, see the book Before the Dawn (2006) by Nicholas Wade.
Montreal is in the state of Quebec (Canada) which is a francophone region. So yes the primary language is French.
