  • It depends.

    To get past someone in the street “Pardon”

    To ask for something that might be an inconvenience “Excusez-moi” (vous avez l’heure s’il vous plaît)

    If you are contrite and want forgiveness “Pardonnez-moi”

    If you are upbraiding someone for taking liberties “Eh! oh!”

  • Excuse Me In French


    Paul, They’re not ignorant my friend, they’re Stupid. There is a difference. Ignorance is an innocent lack of knowledge, I’m ignorant about rocket science for instance. Stupid is knowing what you do or say is wrong and doing it anyway. Your acquaintance must be stupid since everyone should now know that more heteros have aids than do gay/bi folks. That bit of knowledge is even in the Drive By Media. But, if it will make you feel better – don’t slap! A good solid fist to the throat will get and hold their attention so you can explain things to them patiently. Be certain to punctuate your discussion with an occasional kick to the belly so they can stay focused. Good luck

  • How Do You Spell Excuse

  • If it’s “excuse me”? like “what (did you say)?”, then it’s “Pardon.” If it’s excusing yourself after bumping into someone or the like, then it’s “excusez-moi.” This can also be used in conversation when someone else is talking and you’re politely interrupting.

  • It’s simply “Excusez-moi,” or if you want to be really formal, try “Veuillez s’il vous plaȋt m’excuser.” But the latter one sounds more of an apology whereas the former is more about if you were passing by in a crowded place.

  • Excuse me in French is translated as ‘Excusez-moi’

  • Pardonnez-moi.

  • “pardonnez-moi” as in pardon me…


    “excusez-moi” for excuse me

    Maybe more formal: Veuillez m’excuser (would you please excuse me)

  • Pardon..
