French: Phrases > Simple conversations

The sentences presented in this section will help you with the most basic expressions in French, such as "good day" and "thank you". It will certainly not be enough in order to start a conversation in French, however being able to say a few words in the country's native language will evoke sympathy and understanding.

Not everyone speaks very good English in France. Therefore it is certainly recommended that you buy a professional language guide or language course before you travel.
