In honour of Europe's annual day celebrating language learning, we have put together a quiz to test your knowledge of some of French's most unusual expressions. How well do you know the language of Molière?


Europe has set aside a special day each year (September 26th), that is intended to be a reminder that it's a pretty good idea to learn another tongue.

The Local has decided to honour this very special day in its own slightly humorous way with a quiz to test your knowledge of the colourful and seemingly endless world of French expressions.

Lest we forget, French is absolutely loaded with colorful (and slightly profane) ways to make your point.

Here's the quiz. Bonne chance!
