French Language Day is celebrated on March 20th every year to bring light to the French culture through their language, literature and poetry. The day was established by the UN in celebration of multilingualism, cultural diversity and to maintain the equality of all six official languages of the UN (English, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and French).
The date of French Language Day was chosen symbolically on the date of the creation of the Agency for Cultural and Technical Cooperation (ACCT) in 1970, which became the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF).
Every year on this day, various events and activities are organized in order to celebrate the French language. These may include cultural events, concerts, lectures, exhibitions, cuisines, films and more. This is a great opportunity for people to learn more about the French language and to celebrate its rich history and culture.
