Fête: Celebration, Birthday, Party. We use it depending the moment
So "fête" itself can mean "party" as it can mean a specific celebration. But alone and with no context, it's "party" that comes to mind straight and first.
"Fête" has a broader meaning. It could be used to name almost any celebration, whether it's a birthday or a random party.
Maybe your teacher's french is like my english...

Freetown and Libreville. You learn something new every day (if you're stupid like me and didn't work it out before)

QM can listen to me if he wants to be right. If not, that's fine, too. Not a big deal.
For me, as Portuguese native, another Romance Language, I can clearly understand why "femme" would never be "girl", it's the same in Portuguese: "mulher" (femme) is not a "girl".
If I was doing the opposite, yes I could translate "girl" for "mulher", as in English it is used as "woman". The point is be closer to the real use in the original language.
And this is why translators are important, otherwise we would all be using Google Translate.
Great quiz. I'd enjoy similar in other languages, e.g. German, Italian, Dothraki.
