Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yasmine: When you introduce yourself, it's a good habit to shake hands in France, and if you are not sure whether to use the formal or informal version, just say simply enchanté(e).
If you use the correct sentence with French people, they’re definitely going to be impressed!

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
