Help....I'm new

Hey, I'm new to shorthand and Gregg Shorthand looked the most promising and was the best looking and seemed to be the most common. I'm stuck at which system to use, though. I want to use shorthand to facilitate and speed up my note taking. The thing is I speak both French and english, and I go to school in french. So I was wondering if Gregg supports the French sounds as well as english sounds and which would be the best type to use, or if anyone knew of any other systems that support french and english and any links to information about those.
Thanks alot.
