French Greetings

We know that the way french people greet each other varies from culture to culture and depends on how well they know each other. For example when you see your best friend you may hug her to say hello, as opposed to an acquaintance to whom you may just nod your head in acknowledgement.

French people always make physical contact. Friends and business partners often share une poignée de main. If they are relatives or good friends they may embrace slightly or kiss each other on both cheeks.
