The French have a particular way of greeting each other. Boys
shake hands while a boy and a girl or two girls would kiss each
other on the cheek (se faire la bise). People say Salut ! as a
greeting or to say goodbye when they know each other very well.
However, one would use Bonjour ! to greet someone in the
daytime in a formal setting and Au revoir ! to say goodbye. Again
in a formal setting, Bonsoir ! could be used to say goodbye at the
end of the day or to greet someone after 7 pm. As you can
imagine, meeting a large group of friends and taking leave of
them can take a long time.
In French, there are two ways of saying you :
vous and tu. Among family members, friends and
students, tu is used. You would use vous when
addressing to someone who is much older or in a
more senior position than you are, or a stranger.
If you are in doubt, use vous. Vous is also used
when you are talking to two or more people.
