Bonjour! Parlez-vous français? March 20th marks French Language Day at the United Nations, celebrating the first of six official U.N. language days throughout the year.
To mark the occasion, we’re kicking off a CGTN web series to examine how the U.N. conducts business in its six official languages to honor multilingualism and cultural diversity.
And we’ll attempt to do this in all six languages. Here’s U.N. correspondent Liling Tan filing her first story, in French, with a little help from a U.N. insider and our multilingual news team.
At the United Nations, interest in Mandarin has steadily grown over the years, as has demand for UN news in Chinese. The world body marks Chinese Language Day every April 20th.
¡Saludos! For part three of our web series on U.N. languages, Liling Tan tries her hand at a news story in Español!
