I used Giphy for the first time; it was very fun and easy to use.

As a teacher of French as a second language (FSL), I often get asked by my students when to use “tu” versus “vous.” I tell them that it depends on the context, but generally in France, people always use “vous” with strangers, someone who is older or your boss ; if you use “tu”, people might get offended. However, in Quebec, people tend to use “tu” very easily.
