Greetings and expressions are an important part of a language. A conversation well begun with the right greeting is going the right way.
Bonjour - Good morning/hello
Bonsoir - Good evening
Bon voyage - Happy Journey
Bon appétit - Enjoy your meal
Bonne soirée - Have a good evening ahead
Bonne nuit - Good night
Bon means good for a masculine noun. Bonne also means good but for a feminine noun.
The difference is based on the gender of the noun.
The nouns here are:
jour - day
soir - evening
voyage - trip/voyage
appétit - appetite
soirée - duration in the evening
nuit - night
These are common greetings and phrases used in French.

Bonsoir is said usually when you meet someone in the evening.
Bonne soirée is said while saying good bye in the evening and wishing the person a good evening ahead.

French Telephone numbers usually consist of 10 digits. French speakers call out/give out numbers in 2 digit intervals. For example: 04 56 24 37 29 has to be said like zero four or just four, fifty six, twenty four and so on in French. This is an accepted pattern to call out phone numbers.
