How do french people greet eachother?


Wiki User

French people greet each other much as any other people do. They say "Bonjour, comment ça va?" (Hello, how are you?) or "Salut, ça fait longtemps qu'on s'est vu!" (Hey, it's been awhile since we've seen each other!) or even "Salut, mon pote!" (Hey, buddy!) . There are many ways to greet someone in French.

Many French people also kiss both of the person they're greeting's cheeks. It's considered normal and polite to do, even when they're the same gender.

we also say coucou with people we know well.

And when you see again the same person you can say rebonjour!
