How do you say hello in french

"Bonjour" (more formal) or "salut" (casual) would be the most common, but I've also heard my French office mate use "allô" (when she would approach someone's cubicle, to get someone's attention).

I was taught to say Bonjour first.

Bonjour à tous le deux! Merci beaucoup toru for provding a great response to Jasmin. There are in fact many ways to say "hello" in French depending on the time of day, level of formality and region in France. If you ever have the chance to go, listen to the way different people say hello. Keep up the good work! - Marie-Claire

I understood "allô" was used when talking on the phone, I guess its an informal way to say hello with co-workers. Learned something new.

And of course there is always, "Démad déoc'h"!
