It may not seem like it but… I am in… France!

I know you can see me in my Seattle home but that’s because I shot this video a little bit in advance. Next week though you will see me in France with my friends and my family! Ok but today, in the spirits of traveling to France, I want to give you 25 key French phrases you must use on your next trip to France.

Vous êtes prêt?

First of all I have to say please don’t be shy! Who cares if you’re not perfect! If you make mistakes? Nobody! What people care about is you trying and being respectful by doing so.

Even saying as little as these 25 phrases will get you a totally different treatment than if you only spoke to the French in English.

Bonjour Madame: Hello Ma’am

Bonjour Monsieur: Hello Sir

Au revoir Madame: Good bye Ma’am

Au revoir Monsieur: Good bye Sir
