France (Like Canada But Not As Cold)
Customs regarding formality and informality vary depending on where you are, in America, it is polite to shake someones hand when you first meet them or open the door for them. France, however, is a different story, not only are there gestures that are and arent appropriate, but how you address people is important as well. For example, if you said ¨on fait¨ (we make) that is informal, but if you say ¨nous faisons¨ (We make) That is considered formal. Similarrules apply to how you greet your friends versus adults and so on.
