Karen Massin, CEO of known relations firm Burson-Marsteller Brussels, said English will last the main language in Europe after Brexit.
Speaking on France 24, Ms Massin influenced: “I think English is going to Remain and I believe that the idea that French absolutely could revive after Brexit, I think is very much of a infatuated with dream.”
She added: “I think it’s just a reality. It’s practicalities.
“If you put 28 people from manifold nationalities around the table. I mean, they have to have a average language. In practice, that language is English.

“I think what is happening in Brussels is extremely similar to what is happening in the member states. I think 51 percent of the people in Europe, which is 510 million, literally are able to speak English as a first or second language.”
Ms Massin’s remarks followed Emmanuel Macron’s swipe at the UK last March, where he demanded the English language was too dominant in Brussels – especially at a time when Britain has certain to unshackle itself from the European Union.
The French President remarks came as he revealed a plot to make French the most commonly spoken language in the Brussels bloc.
Emmanuel Macron prognosticated: “The situation now is quite paradoxical. English has probably never been as provide in Brussels at the time when we are talking about Brexit.
“This rule is not inevitable. It’s up to us to set some rules, to be present, and make French the language with whom one has access to a party of opportunities.”
French has long been dominant at EU headquarters and there are some 274 million French demagogues worldwide, making it the fifth most widely spoken language in the humanity.
But since eastern European members joined the Brussels club in 2004, English has appropriate for far-reaching across EU institutions.
Mr Macron insisted his plot is not against the use of English, but numberless to promote multilingualism.
