Goodbye in French
Goodbye in French
In this lesson you will learn how to say goodbye in French. There are two ways to say this: Au revoir (more formal) and Salut (Same as informal “hi” and used in informal situations). Just as it’s important to say hello in French it is also important to say goodbye when you part ways. Just like English there are many ways of saying goodbye. The most polite way is to say “au revoir“. This literally means until I see you again. You can make it more polite by adding madame or monsieur to the end of it.
More Ways of Saying Goodbye
To say see you soon say “à bientôt“. This is very common if you are going to see the person in the coming hours, days or even weeks. If you are want to see somebody very shortly you can also say “à plus”. This would be regarded as a very casual. Also, another casual way to say goodbye is simply “Salut!”
One final way is to simply to say “à la prochaine“. This would also be regarded as quite casual and that means see you next time as prochaine means next.
