    Hello,

    How to say "Premier arrivé, premier servi" in English ? Can we translate it literally ?
    It means that the sooner you arrive, the wider range of choice you have to select what you want.

    Bonne journée!

    A peculiar article, to a USE Anglophone (among other things, it would never occur to a native speaker to say "first come, first serve", rather than "served"). As usual, USE tends to dispense with the hyphens.

    "First come, first served" means literally that the first person to arrive will be served first, and later comers have to wait their turn. To convey the idea that the first comer actually has the widest choice, what about "the early bird gets the worm"?

    If you want to convey that meaning, I would prefer, "arrive early for best selection".

    Est-ce qu'on fait une liaison entre "premier" et "arrivé" dans ce cas en français ? (Est-ce qu'on peut ne pas la faire ?)
    Merci d'avance !
