"Good evening, how are you doing?"
Translation:Bonsoir, comment ça va ?
You have to say "Bonsoir, comment ca va ?" or else the translation would be "Good evening, I am fine."
I remembered that Duolingo taught me Good evening was bonne soirée. When i answered, it marked it was wrong :(
"Bonne soirée" is good evening and "Bonsoir" is good evening ? what is the difference
Just to make sure I understood this: bonne soirée only works when there is a departure, whilst bonsoir works when there is an encounter without a departure?
Ca va is the familiar tense correct? To a strange I thought it was proper to use Comment allez-vous? the non familiar. Also I thought in asking a question, one inverted the pronoun and verb as I used above. Can anyone comment on these permutations of the language?
I tried bonne soirée and got it wrong. I seem to remember it being more of a "have fun this evening" than a casual evening greeting. Can anyone confirm?
Bonsoir, ca va ? This should be ok, too !
(of course, with the squiggle under the c)
