Hello, for numbers such as 1,2 millions , do we also say it the same way, ie. "un virgule deux millions" ? Is "point" ever used in french? Thank you,
This question relates to:French lesson "Writing decimal numbers in French"

In French ‘un point’ is used for a full stop, the punctuation mark.
You might hear people saying ‘point barre!’ in a conversation, to mean ‘period!’ and end of conversation abruptly ...
Hope this helps!
Thanks you Cécile. So saying 1.2 million in french (1,2 millions): "un virgule deux millions" is correct yea?

'Un virgule deux millions’ is correct but you will probably hear -
‘Un million deux cent mille’ more often i think....
Parfait, merci beaucoup :)
