Ep58 - Voilà ! It's time to use this word like a native
Play • 9 min

Last week, my partner watched a rugby match on tv and he got really impressed by the incredible amount of "voilà" one can fit in a few sentences. He, then, asked me if it was common for French people to use this word so much. I mean, the rugby player felt the need to put at least one "voilà" per sentence. That is some dedication!

Of course, as you can imagine, I answered him that no, we’re not supposed to use "voilà" as a punctuation mark.

Today you’re going to learn how to use "voilà" properly.

Last year, thanks to the Eurovision, this little word got famous again all over the world. It was the title of the song France won her second place with so it was time for "voilà" to have its own episode.
