A Quick Overview Of Salut
'Salut' means 'greetings' or 'hi' and 'bye' in French (think of 'salutations'). You can use it in a very informal way to say 'hi' to someone, or to send greetings to someone - in the sense of 'tell you sister I say hi'.
It is also the French word for 'salvation'.
'Salut' is not a difficult word for English speakers to pronounce. There are 2 things to remember:
- the 't' is silent;
- the 'u' in French has a sound that is closer to the 'ew' in 'yew' than the 'ou' in 'you' in English. Don't pronounce 'salut' like 'saloo' - modify the 'u' to be absolutely correct.
