TAKE A BREAK 1
Okay, let’s stop there. You learned how to say
Hello
(
Bonjour 
),
Hi 
(
Salut
),
Good- bye 
(
 Au
 
revoir 
),
How are you? 
(
Comment vas-tu?
or 
Comment allez- vous?
),
I’m fine 
(
Ça va
),
What’s 
 
your name 
? (
Commentt’appelles-tu?
or 
Comment vous appelez- vous?
),
Mrs 
. (
Madame
),
Mr.
(
Monsieur 
), and
Miss 
 (
Mademoiselle
). Did you notice that there are two ways of asking how someone is or what someone’sname is? One is familiar, used with friends, family, and children. Those are the questions with
tu,
 whichis the familiar way of saying
you
:
Comment vas-tu?
and
Comment t’appelles-tu?
The others use thepolite form for 
you
,
 vous.
They’re used with adults you don’t know well, colleagues, and people in formalsituations:
Comment allez- vous?
and
Comment vous appelez- vous?
So, in French
tu
and
 vous
bothmean
you
, but the first is familiar and the second is polite. When in doubt, use
 vous
unless you’re invitedto use
tu.
Now let’s look at some more greetings.
