How to say “non” in French

Bonjour !

Last week, we talked about how frustrating it was to only be able to say « Oui » and « Non ». In English, you can answer yes, no and all that’s in between. In French, you feel like 5 year old.

So following last week’s episode of Comme une Française TV on « oui », you’ll discover 10 ways to nuance your « Non ».

  • Hi Geraldine, I love the ways to say yes and no – thank you! I can’t tell the difference between the pronunciation of non and nan, I think I might have been saying nan when I should have said non! Help!
