Un tranche de pain is a loaf of bread wouldn't un pain simple be a bread

"A bread" is ungrammatical in English. You would just say "bread". If you want to specify that it is a single bread you are speaking of, then you would say "A loaf of bread". So "un pain" (a single bread) would translate to "a loaf of bread".

So they don't have loafs of bread in France?

Un and une, for pain and baguette

Why is s'il te plait not correct? Is it informal?
