Learn French On Bastille Day!

Learn French On Bastille Day!

Bastille Day - “Fête nationale” or “Quatorze Juillet” - is the national day of France. It is celebrated each year on 14th July with a mixture of solemn military parades and easygoing dancing and fireworks.

The storming of the Bastille, a military fortress and prison in Paris, was one of the major events in France. It began the open rebellion in the summer of 1789, and it signaled that the French Revolution was officially underway.

If you want to wish someone a Happy Bastille Day, say “Joyeux Quatorze Juillet” (Happy July 14th)!
