Eye contact

French people like direct eye contact. Getting another drivers attention this way can get them to allow you into a line, a waiter will take you more seriously with eye contact, and people in small stores like eye contact and a bonjour monsieur or a bonjour madame before asking for what you want

New cards
27

Posture

French people have good posture. Standing up straight and keeping your hands out of your pockets can indicate self-respect and respect for others

New cards
28

Use of Space

French people stand (or sit) very closely to each other while carrying on a conversation so they can speak softly for privacy (you shouldn't be heard at another table)

New cards
29

Touch

The French are okay with more touch between couples than Americans are, but they have less touch between friends (a shorter handshake, la bise instead of a hug)

New cards
30

Smell

French people have more of an acceptance of body odor than Americans do - they do not feel the need to mask it as much

New cards
31

Clothes (or lack there of)

French clothes have a closer fit than American clothes and they don't often have bright colors, logos, or shirts hanging out. French women are more comfortable in their bodies as well. They really emphasize la tenue correct, or being appropriately dressed

New cards
32

Facial Expressions

French people smile less than Americans. They smile when there is a reason to smile, to show you have made a connection with someone. They prefer the real smiles to American polite smiles. French people often do a 2 second pout at well to indicate reflection rather than a negative attitude

New cards
33

The French pout

You say "bof" with the elbows close to the body, hands palm up and wider apart than the elbows. This means "So what? Who cares?"

New cards
34

Forehead tapping

You say "ca ne va pas, non" while tapping your forehead with your index finger or making small circles with your index finger on the side of your head (not near the ear!). This indicates that someone has done something crazy

New cards
35

The eye thing

Say "mon oeil" while pulling down on your lower eyelid with your index finger. This means "likely story" and indicates disbelief or skepticism

New cards
36

The beard thing

Say "la barbe" while you stoke the side of your face like you have a beard. This indicates that something is boring.

New cards
37

The drunkard

Pretend to grab your nose with your first and twist it from side to side. This indicates that someone is drunk and doesn't require any words

New cards
38

Hand shaking

Say "oh la la" or "ca alors" while shaking your hand from your wrist 3 times. This indicates that you had a close call, it means "I was scared there for a minute"
