How important is it to accent the c in french?

I understand that C and Ç make different sounds. But if your just talking online like in a game chat or in a YouTube comment how crucial? Another related question, if you write something down and dont accent the C, does that matter?

It only matters in some words where it will change their meaning. It is always better to remember the accents.


This is also important for the French because they were asked from the age of six to make efforts for years and years to learn all the situations where the c cedille "ç" is used. So yes, it's important for them, all those efforts!


its not that CRUCIAL, but its always good to get it right where you can.
