"Bonjour la France!" Stereotypes Tip by Krystynn
Stereotypes, Paris: 80 reviews and 39 photos
The French are VERY proud of their country, culture and language. :-) Be lavish with your Monsieurs, Madames, Mademoiselles (pronounced as 'Mey-moo-are-zels'), Merci Beaucoup.... and DO greet people with a friendly 'Bonjour' or 'Bonsoir' (if it's after 6.00PM) and NOT - 'Yo, man! How ya doing?!' Not even Eminem can get away with this. ;-)
Some people also say French folks are snooty. I hate to say this - but I'd have to disagree with the critics on this statement. After spending some time in this city and after encountering a most unpleasant situation here, the French people's concern, hospitality and warmth have left an indelible impression on me.
Yes, contrary to popular beliefs, even the most flailing effort to speak halting French will be very much appreciated. Trust me!
