Both languages have their strong points, and it depends on your definition of "better". English is obviously widely used so if someone was interested in business I would suggest English because it will be more useful, although French is spoken everywhere from Eastern Canada to Africa and obviously Europe. The French tend to be very particular about their diction, how they say things and are very precise in the meaning. Many people would argue that French sounds better than English because it is a romantic language along with Italian and Spanish; English is a Germanic language and more in line with German. There is no right or wrong answer, it just depends on your sense of "better".

In French, it is easier to express yourself then in English. THere are more useful verbs and adjectives. While in English it's a little harder to express yourself.

What language is harder Spanish or French?

Many people agree that French is a harder language to learn than Spanish, but French grammar more closely mirrors English grammar than Spanish grammar does. It is far better, if you have to choose between studying French or Spanish that you choose the language that is more useful to you since the level of difficulty of both languages (assuming you know English) is roughly equivalent. For example, we are not contrasting Spanish and Arabic where Arabic is significantly harder to learn than Spanish.
