Local Etiquette and Respect:
French people value their language very much. While they do speak English, it is appreciated if you can say a few words in French. It's also customary to greet with a quick kiss on both cheeks. Always say “Bonjour” (Good day) or “Bonsoir” (Good evening) when entering shops and restaurants.
