How do you say how old are you in French?
French as a Language of Informality and Formality:
Unlike English, French has two ways of addressing someone, formally or informally. The formal way is to always use vous when addressing strangers, people you don't know very well and people who are senior either in terms of age or seniority. Tu is always reserved for people you're very close with, usually in a close familial or intimate way.
