Learn Hospitality French, and avoid any ‘faux pas’ with your French speaking guests
As a foreigner’s first gateway to the local culture, if you work in a hotel, then you are truly an ambassador of your hotel’s brand and customer service.
Make sure you know how to greet your French hotel guests without making any dreaded ‘faux pas’ (false step in French)! The nation that created “haute couture” puts premium on appearance, and expect an individual, warm and attentive but not overly friendly welcome.
More than 220 million people speak French on the five continents, and it’s the sixth most widely spoken language in the world. As well as your guests arriving form France, French also comes in handy for travelers from Africa, Switzerland, Canada, Monaco, and the Seychelles.
Did you know? France is the world’s top tourist destination and attracts more than 79,5 million visitors a year. They are well versed in the language of tourism so make sure you speak theirs!
