How to greet someone and introduce yourself in French, and quickly have your first talk  in French. Let us dive in.

Meet and greet

First of all, how do we form sentences in French ? It is pretty much the same how you do it in English. Generally you have a subject (un sujet) + a verb (un verbe) + a complement (un complément). Make sure always to have those elements when forming a sentence in French. At the beginning you will certainly need to translate everything in French word by word. Let us get started with greetings. The first thing you need to be aware of is that the French language uses two clearly levels of speech : familiar and formal. Let us imagine in a formal environment for now (formal greetings) : a cocktail party. Here are the sentences you are going to use :

Bonjour → Hi, good morning, good afternoon
Bonsoir → good evening How to pronounce them ?
Use your lips, place the sound forward in the mouth and scratch your throat.

You can be more specific and saying :
Bonjour mademoiselle → Hello miss
Bonjour Madame → Hello Madam
Bonjour Monsieur → Hello Sir The word
Monsieur is pronounced totally differently from the way it is spelt.

Then to ask how someone is doing, we say :
Comment allez-vous ? → How are you doing ?
Vous allez bien ? → Are you doing well ?
Je vais bien, merci → I am doing well, thank you
Bien, merci → I am well, thank you Pas mal → Not bad
Comme çi, comme ça → So, so
Je vais mal, très mal → I am doing badly, very badly
Je vais très bien, et vous ? → I am doing very well, and you ?
Notice that the little word et means « and » in French, it is very useful to know.

If you want to walk away from someone :
Au revoir →Goodbye  
You can also say
A tout à l’heure / à plus tard → See you later
A bientôt → See you soon
A demain → See you tomorrow
