In Germany, using the English language to communicate has been the norm since the advent of the Internet, but it can be a challenge if you’re trying to learn German.
For example, in German, it’s normal to say things like “Hey, German!” instead of “hello,” or say “thank you” instead of asking for a favor.
But if you need to communicate, you need French.
So how can you avoid using the language of the people you are speaking to?
Here’s how to avoid it. 1.
Don’t use “Hello” or “Thanks” to call people out.
If you want to say “Hello, my name is Michael,” or “Thank you for asking me,” or just “Hello,” it’s OK to say, “Hello!” or “Hello.”
And if you want “Thanks,” you can say, simply, “Thanks.”
That’s French for “Thank You.”
But when you’re using French as a language to say something, you’ll likely be using a language that’s less formal, or not well-travelled, or is not widely spoken.
You’ll also be using words that are foreign to the language.
For instance, you might say, with French, “You’re welcome.”
Or “Hello?” with French instead of English.
That’s a bit awkward and makes you sound like you’re not speaking French.
But you can’t say “hello” with French when you need it to be polite.
Use a more formal, more-native, more formal-sounding word.
This means using words like “hello, I’m very happy,” or even “I’m very proud.”
If you’re talking to someone who doesn’t speak English, you can use “sir” instead, “sher” instead or “sonderer” instead.
It’s OK if they don’t speak French, but they should be able to pronounce it.
If they do, you’re better off using a word like “santé,” which is a more-familiar word that’s pronounced “sous-dee,” or you could use “salad,” which can be pronounced “salat.”
In French, you should also use the word “sainte-maître” to say hello or thank you. 3. Don
