Phrase-a-Day: 10 Days ’til France!

I was going to just use one phrase, but figured I should probably just go with a bunch of basics.  Please and thank you and the like.  Let’s face it:  When it comes to more than the basics, I won’t remember much anyways!  (Not without a few more lessons than I’m getting here, anyways!)  I will probably end up speaking English, or getting confused and speaking Spanish.  (I’ve already done that several times when trying to rattle off the few French words I know!)  Or the desperate flailing of my hands in a mish-mashed frantic and failed attempt at sign language.

Excuse me – Excusez-moi

Please – S’il vous plait

Yes – Oui

No –  Non

Thank you – Merci

Thank you very much – Merci beaucoup


So then I can say, “Excusez-moi, s’il vous plait…Merci beaucoup!”  🙂
