Before the 20th century, French was only one of the main languages used in international negotiation and the language of diplomacy. Nowadays, it is included in the United Nation’s six official languages, and one of the official languages of the International Red Cross, the International Olympic Committee, the International postal Union, and many other organisations.

As a Romance language, French originate from the Latin language. The modern English used today has one of its historic roots connected to the Medieval French especially when it comes to vocabulary.

In recent centurues, the Académie Française was established to be the French language’s guardian. It has resisted many changes to the language and has insited that the traditional and existing forms of the French language is the ‘correct French language’.

France is one of the best places to establish a growing business. As such, we have compiled some of the tips and business customs for you to follow when in France.

  • Address people using Madame and Monsieur as France has a high regard for formality. Always address people you meet for the first time and your superiors as Madame or Monsieur. This is important if you want to make a great first impression.
  • In the French business culture, you should always introduce yourself using both of your first and last name. Sometimes, you might hear people introducing themselves mentioning their last name first then their given name. This is also okay.
  • French handshakes are brisk and light. It’s only one or two movements with a loose grip.
  • Be careful with using the ‘okay’ gesture ( making a circle using your index finger and thumb) as this means zero, worthless or nothing in France.
  • First impressions last in France so be prepared. Wear your business attire, accessories and jewellery. These will get you some points. When going to  meeting, you should look like you really mean business. Also, be prepared to shave off your facial hair especially stubbles.
  • Make business meetings in advance – two weeks to be exact. People will be inviting you for a meeting two weeks ahead of time so make sure that when you invite someone to a meeting, send them a notification at least two weeks in advance.

These are just some of the many businness ettiquettes and tips that you need to know when going to France for a business trip and partnership. It is important to always keep these in mind.
