Many countries celebrate their Independence Days with fireworks, food and parades. July 14, Bastille Day, is a special day for the people of France. This day commemorates one of the major events of the French Revolution, the storming of the Bastille, a 18th century French political prison.
The MVCC campus and library also celebrates France. French classes that cover culture and language are offered every semester. The library has a collection of material on France and French culture. The library also subscribes to Paris Match (the French equivalent of People Magazine).
“French is the only language (besides English), that is taught in every nation in the world. More than 200 million people speak French, making it the ninth most widely spoken language in the world.”
Vive la France!
