So I’m here with Tom from Discover Walks, and Tom is going to help me with some french Phrases!

Ok, so how do i say Hello?
Hello, basic one so it’s Bonjour!
I’m sure you’ve heard that before..

Bonjour, ers yeah is the most important one, you wanna say Bonjour! Whenever you enter a shop, err if you buy your croissants, you need to say Bonjour! Ok, it’s the first thing to turn an angry Parisian into a normal person!

What about Salut?
Salut? Oh yeah it’s for friends! Friends!

Err, so yes?! How do I say yes?!
Ok be careful because there’s two ways! There’s the Oui, you say in society, and the one with your friends.. which is ouiii, and people often think that’s two different words, but it just means the same.

Ok, and No?
Easy one!
Yeah, but the Parisian way is never just a non, it’s non… seven times in row!! Like. nonononononononon!! Something like that!

That’s the Parisian way!
