The informal French greeting “Salut!” (pronounced saw-lu) has multiple meanings, including hi, hello, bye, goodbye, and cheers. The French only greet with acquaintances and not with strangers. In more formal situations, the French use both bonjour and au revoir.
The term derives from the French madame, from “ma dame” which means “my lady”. In French, the abbreviation is “Mme” or “Mme” and the plural is mesdames (abbreviated “Mmes” or “Mmes”). These terms ultimately derive from the Latin domina, meaning “mistress”.
While a monsieur is a monsieur in any case, a madame is a married woman and a mademoiselle is an unmarried woman.
“Madame” (Mme) for a woman. The plural is Mesdames (Mmes). “Mademoiselle” (Mlle) is a traditional alternative for an unmarried woman.
Forgive my French, or excuse my French, is an excuse for using profanity; the expression dates back to 1895. Pardon derives from the Old French pardoner, meaning “to grant, to forgive.”

mademoiselle, abbreviation Mlle, the French equivalent of “Miss”, referring to an unmarried woman. Etymologically, it means “my (young) lady” (ma demoiselle).
So to say “Hello, how are you?” in French, just say bonjour, ça va? or salut, ça va?
When you want to say “nice to meet you” in French, you usually say “enchanté” (if you’re talking to a man) or “enchantée” (if you’re talking to a woman). The translation is literally the word “enchanted” which sounds very formal to many English speakers but actually sounds pretty casual in French.
