Knowing a little bit of the french language will go a long way while you’re in Paris; further than you expected. Here are a list of words:

“The most important word you should know is bonjour while you’re in Paris.

By far, the most important word in the French language is Bonjour and if you pay attention to the Parisians, any sort of interaction with a French has to start with a heartfelt Bonjour. Anything else would be considered rude. This is how you ‘announce’ that you want to speak with a native French person. Everything else come after. For example, excusez-moi or pardon, etc…
