On March the 20th we celebrate UN (United Nations) French Language Day. The event was established by UN’s Department of Public Information in 2010 “to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity as well as to promote equal use of all six official languages throughout the Organisation”.
In 2010 the UN named six language days in recognition of the six official languages of the U.N. and to bring attention to the history, culture, and achievements of each of the languages. The U.N. selected March 20 for French Language Day in honor of the 40th anniversary of the International Organization of La Francophonie.
French is spoken in more than 25 countries, and in all five continents around the world. It is one of the primary romance languages spoken today. While it’s one language, there are many dialects. Spread out on these five continents are 275 million speakers all fluently speaking a diverse language influenced by their culture. From France to Canada, South Africa, and Louisiana, French dialects are as nuanced as the cuisine is from culture to culture.
