Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody!
Do you know how to say “Bye” in French? In this lesson, you'll learn three parting expressions in French.
Let’s start with the easiest one.
Au revoir.
[slowly] Au revoir.
This means "Goodbye" in French.
This is the most commonly used phrase to say "bye."
If you know that you are going to see the person again, there is a different phrase you should use.
À bientôt.
[slowly] À bientôt.
This means "See you soon" in French.
This expression begins with the article à meaning "until." Then, we have bientôt, which means "soon."
If you want to say "bye" at night, here's a phrase for you.
Bonne soirée.
[slowly] Bonne soirée.
This means "Good night" in French.
Bonne means "good" and soirée means "night."
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what you've learned. Listen to the words and repeat after me.

If you want to leave things on a positive note and wish the person a good day or afternoon, you must first begin the phrase with bon or bonne, depending on the gender of the person. Then, you must add the time of day or activity that is coming after your departure.

Bonjour Carey et Careyotani !

Merci pour vos commentaires !

@careyotani you can say "je m'en vais". There is no literal translation for "I'm out".

@careyxxx "je me casse" is correct! You can say it, but be careful it's not polite!

A bientôt !

I just learned from frenchpod101 the expression "On se casse." Can I say in French "Je me casse"?

Are there other expressions such as "Je me sauve" or "Je me fille"? I hope you can guess what I mean. Here is my real question: How do you say "I am out of here" in French? You are at a place you do not like very much. It is time for you to leave. You are leaving now.
