"Good evening, I am fine, thank you!"
Translation:Bonsoir, ça va bien, merci.
What's the difference between ''Bonne soirée'' and ''Bonsoir''? I typed ''Bonne soirée'' and it didn't accept.
I get that--just trying to make sense of the individual words but maybe that's not possible. Why not 'Je suis bien'?
Hello Christine, you cannot translate I'm fine by Je suis bien in this context. In France we say : — Bonjour Christine comment allez-vous ? Or (Hello Christine how are you doing?) and you answer : — je vais bien merci. Or I'm fine thanks. Je suis bien is more like Je suis en forme. I'm in shape.
That I think would literally mean I am good, as in well behaved, and not like "my life is good", if I'm not mistaken
Ça is used as "it", and Va is from the verb aller meaning "to go". So Ça va bien - it is going well.
