Bon Jour !! What is the difference between: s'il te plaît -and- s'il vous plaît ?
This question relates to:French lesson "Je voudrais vs je veux"
Kwiziq language super star
You would say the familiar 's'il te plaît' to someone you say 'tu' to- so children, family members, friends etc...
and the more respectful 's'il vous plaît' to someone you say 'vous' to - so strangers, in shops, to people you don't know very well, or elderly people not part of your family etc...
Hope this helps!
