Is it true that the French language was a symbol of civilization in the past?

It still is. All language is. Language itself is symbolic of civilization, an oral and aural representation of civilization conceptually.

At one time, French was the international language of diplomacy. I understand that it is now English, because so few Americans could speak french.
