Interersting take on above, :gmc:

Bon matin - French Mistake

Wrong: Bon matin

Right: Bonjour


In English, "good morning" is a typical greeting. Its literal French translation, "bon matin," is not. If you want to greet someone in the morning, you just say bonjour. The only time you would use bon matin is in the expression de bon matin, which means "bright and early."

Likewise for "good afternoon" - the French simply don't use "bon après-midi" as a greeting. If you want to greet someone in the afternoon, you should again say bonjour. However, when you leave you can say bon après-midi to wish someone a nice afternoon.

Right I better get off now. :roll: :gmc:
