How To Tell Somebody When Your Birthday Is In French

We'll use the 24th of July as an example here:
  • Je suis né(e) le vingt-quatre Juillet. = I was born on the 24th of July.
  • If somebody asked you when your birthday was, you would reply "C'est le vingt-quatre Juillet" or just "Le vingt-quatre Juillet."

How To Ask Somebody When Their Birthday Is

Textbook French is quite different to colloquial French; if you wanted to speak like a native, you could ask someone when their birthday is in one of the following ways:
  • T'es né(e) quand? This literally translates as "You were born when?" but means "When were you born?"
  • C'est quand ton anniversaire? The literal translation for this one is "It's when, your birthday?" but you'd use it to mean "When's your birthday?"
