Definition

(Bien) cordialement, bien à vous : (Kind) regards, yours sincerely formel

When starting the correspondance with formal greetings such as (Cher) Monsieur (le directeur) or (Chère) Madame (la directrice), we sign off with cordialement or bien à vous. Some really formal types don’t like using cordialement when addressing one’s superior.

Bien à toi, Amicalement, Amitiés : Best wishes, all the best


Je t’embrasse, bises : Love


Bisous : Kisses, xxx familier

We use bisous to sign off letters and e-mails to close friends and family.

Salut mon chéri, tu vas bien ? Bisous ! Hi darling, how are you? Kisses!
