In our daily life, we meet lots of people, like are our family members, relative, friends, colleagues or unknown persons.

Wishing someone with greetings is the part of French etiquettes. In this article, we will learn about some greetings in French Language. Here are the list of top 10 most used Greetings in French Language.

1. Bonjour: Bonjour is the most common word use in French Language. Whenever you meet someone you can say Bonjour. The Literal Meaning of Bonjour is Good Day. As Bon means Good and Jour Means Day. So, Bonjour is translated as Good Day in French, but Bonjour is used to say Hi, Hello. It can also be used to say Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Or Good Evening. It can also be used to say have a Nice Day in French.

2. Salut : Salut is also used to say Hello in French and it can also be used to say Good Bye as well. We can use Bonjour or Salut to say Hello in French, But Bonjour is used in Formal relations while Salut is used in Informal Relations.
