This video teaches you how to say hello to someone in French. When you approach a female, you should say "Bonjour, Madame". The first word has two (2) syllables. The first syllable is pronounced the same as the word bone is pronounced in English. The second syllable of the first word is pronounced like the English word Jew: i.e. bone-Jew. The j sound in Jew should be overly exaggerated. To say hello to a male, you should say "Bonjour, Monsieur". This is a formal way to say hello. A less formal way to say hello is with the word salut. This word can be used to say hello and goodbye: "Salut". The t is silent.
