GPO - Windows 10 - Language

Is there a way to force Primary input language via GPO .. Let's say that i want a certain group of users to be in french and another group in English.

I'm using a golden image on which the language packs have been installed?

It's a Windows 2016 Domain

Great ... is there a way to specify the keyboard layout for a specific language  using a powershell script!
Haven't done it, but http://www.capri-technology.be/en/blog/set-keyboard-layout-powershell looks as if it is easily achievable. There are cmdlets for it, yes.
It does work with powershell commands .... but a reboot is needed as opposed to Windows 7 where you could set  the language via a Simple GPO and modifications would apply/show right away!
Follow up .... you can use GPO with "Restrict the UI Language Windows Should use for the selected user" and "Restrict Selection of Windows Menus and dialogs language" to switch language via a GPO but there is a twist ... not all language pack seems to be supported .. for example "French" ...  The language pack "French France" must be installed in order for this to work ... "French Canadian" language pack will not kick in while trying to switch user to french for some reason ... maybe someone out there knows how to make it work?
No, I don't.
