Répétez s’il vous plaît

Very often you can repeat words that are spoken to you in French. The French do this and we also do this in English. Qu'est-ce que tu as fait le week-end dernier? Le week-end dernier j'ai...

This gives you chance to think about what you are going to say, it allows you to repeat some words that you have just heard, and it allows that peron to hear that you have understood the question and that you can say something in French.

You can repeat the question entirely. Il y a ...près d’ici? It still gives you time to think and if there are lots of them you can say il y en a beaucoup. Don’t use repetition too much just as you wouldn’t in English. It is nice to have an answer.

A bientôt
