What does à demain mean?

Definition

The literal meaning is:

  • À → To
  • demain → tomorrow

 

“À demain” is the common way to express “See you tomorrow” in French.

How to use

When you know for sure that you will see the person tomorrow, you can include “À demain” when you say goodbye. You can also use “On se voit demain” (We see each other tomorrow) which is a bit more informal.

But if instead of seeing the person tomorrow, you will see him/her another day, you should adapt how you say goodbye.

Few examples:

  • À ce soir → See you this evening
  • À lundi / mardi / mercredi… → See you next Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday…
  • À la semaine prochaine → See you next week
  • À bientôt → See you soon
  • À la prochaine → See you next time
  • À l’année prochaine → See you next year

Funny stuff

You might hear some French people saying something weird: “À deux pieds” (literally: “to two feet” but it doesn’t mean anything) instead of “À demain

But why?!

Simply because “demain” sounds exactly like “deux mains” which means “two hands“. And so people are sometimes having fun with that and replace “hands” with “feet” which make it become → “À deux pieds“.

Which makes this kind of weird dialogue to happen:

  • À demain → See you tomorrow
  • Ah non ! À deux pieds ! → Nope! To two feet!

Synonyms and similarities

  • On se voit demain → We see each other tomorrow
  • À dem1 → See you tomorrow (Texting)
