If you’ve already mastered the French language, and you’re looking for a new challenge, the Pompidou Centre in Paris might have what you need. Along with over 100 other activities, the cultural hub is offering courses in Martian.

Whether it's for those who want to add an extra language skill to their CV or for anyone wanting to be fully prepared for an invasion from the Red Planet, a new course at the French capital's world-famous Pompidou Centre could be for you.

As part of its Nouveau Festival, the centre otherwise known as Beaubourg is offering one particularly special course at the moment – in Martian.

The festival programme features performances, lectures, films, exhibitions, and more, all centred around the theme of invented languages in contemporary art, cinema and literature.

“Visitors can write in Martian, create customized books, and discover some 3,000 spoken and written languages,” president of the Pompidou Centre, Alain Seban, told France TV.

Top of the list of exhibits is one about the eccentric, turn-of-the-century Swiss medium Hélène Smith, who laid the foundation for much of the written Martian language.

The Nouveau Festival at the Pompidou Centre runs until March 11th.
