'm looking at a French check right now, written to me on a Crédit Agricole check, that says my name, with the date filled in, followed by "deux cents euros et 83 cents."

What is written on a bank check doesn't have much to do with what one says in daily speaking IMO. I don't know dozens of people in France, but I think everyone I've dealt with in stores and elsewhere has said centimes, whether it is old fashioned or not and they weren't all old people, either.

<i>I'm not sure why so many are still on about France, Germany etc when the OP clearly tagged their question Italy. Like I said, the answer is centesimi - pronounciation for English speakers, ChentESimi.</i>

You can't see the tags until after you've clicked the thread and who really reads the tags anyway?
