Hey it’s Hannah here
I would like to discus french greetings that I have observed while living in France and going to school
First thing first , the french do the “bisou” , this is Kissing on the left cheek and then the right cheek , this can be woman-to-man, woman-to-woman, or even man-to-woman interactions
second thing man-to-man interactions or formal settings are for the most part the most commun greeting .
You should say “Bonjour Madame/Monsieur” to get someone’s attention , do not say anything else that could seem rude
You should always TRY TO SPEAK FRENCH . Never start in English . It’s appreciated to try to speak their language .
Say “vous” to people you don’t know !!!!
