Translation of you in French:
In French you has two forms: tu and vous. The usual word to use to anyone you do not know very well is vous, also called the polite form: can I help you? = est-ce que je peux vous aider? The more informal tu (plural vous) is used between close friends and family members, within groups of children and young people, and by adults when talking to children: there's a biscuit for you = il y a un biscuit pour toi. If in doubt, use the vous form.
