french culture and travel



as i have learnt before when greeting in french u have to shake the hands of each and every one ur greeting but what if am just asking for direction am i supposed to shake the hands of who ever am inquiring from or do i have shake it if they forward it first


Bonjour mariam, If you are asking a stranger for directions then you would not be required to shake hands with them. Simply say "Excusez-nous" or "Excusez-moi" (depending or whether you are with people or alone) and then carry on with your question. I hope this helps! - Marie-Claire
