French Greetings

Here is a list of French greetings that are used very often in everyday interactions.

If you don’t know them already you should definitely take a bit of time to memorise them.

They’ll allow you to be polite and courteous with the French speaking people you meet, whether you’re talking to the person serving you in a restaurant, or you strike up a conversion with a passer-by.
