so are the phrases "C'est ma meilleure amie" and "elle est ma meilleure amie" pretty much interchangeable? I'm a little confused as to the difference. aidez-moi!
If there's a modifier before the noun - like un, une, etc. - you use c'est instead of il/elle est.
why is "he is my best friend" wrong? I thought c'est can mean "he is" and "she is"?????
True, it can even mean it is. But ma meilleure amie is feminine — the masculine being mon meilleur ami.
In both French and Spanish (and some other languages, I assume), instead of having separate words for "better" and "best," the difference is made clear by context. If it has the word "the" in front of it, it means best.
