Paroles d’adieu

Every hello eventually leads to a good-bye. Here’s how to say good-bye at any time of day as well as mention when you’ll meet again.

au revoir   good-bye
salut   bye
tchao tchao
  bye (on the Mediterranean)
bonne journée   have a nice day
bon après-midi   have a nice afternoon
bonne soirée   have a nice evening
bonne nuit   good night
adieu   farewell

Until we meet again…

à tout de suite   see you in a moment
à tout à l’heure   see you in a little bit
à bientôt   see you soon
à plus
à plus tard
  see you later
à demain   see you tomorrow
à la prochaine   until next time
à lundi, mardi…   see you on Monday, Tuesday…
à la semaine prochaine   see you next week
