What does "bonjour" mean in English?


"Bonjour" is a French word that means "hello" in English. This word is composed of two French root words. "Bon" means "good," and "jour" means "day."

The word "bonjour" is a part of certain idiomatic phrases as well. One of these is "Alors là, bonjour les dégâts!" This sentence means "There'll be trouble!" or "what a mess!" Another common phrase including the word "bonjour" is "C'est simple comme bonjour!" This is equivalent to the English idiom "It's as easy as pie," meaning that something is very easy to do.
