madam vs madame

Madam and madame are both terms used to address a woman.

Madam is more formal and polite, and is often used in business or professional settings. For example: “Excuse me, madam, can you help me with this?”

On the other hand, madame is used specifically for married French women and is less commonly used in modern English. For example: “Bonjour, madame, comment ça va?”

I really appreciate the fact that teachers actually took their time to understand your level and needs. Mine set up a few tailored classes after discussing with me and it was the best learning experience I've had.

Went through a rather rigorous vetting process and started teaching at Amazingtalker a few months ago. It has been so rewarding to meet new students online teach at my own time and leisure.
