When in Paris, Bonjour! seems to roll out off your lips so so freely. It’s such a pretty word. I loved saying it; I loved hearing it.
Bonjour means hello……good day…..it’s a greeting.
You must say Bonjour!
Once you say Bonjour, the next thing I would say is, “I don’t speak French, do you speak English?” And everyone did speak some English.
You’re likely to find yourself needing a little elbow room once or twice during your visit to Paris. Excusez-moi is just the phrase you’ll need! Use your body language to convey that you are sincere. A smile goes a long way!
Please and Thank You in any language are words of respect and consideration. Merci! is fun to say and is sure to get you a smile in return. That said, I feel like everyone knows “Thank You” especially if it’s said with a warm smile.
