Get ready to find out all the things you want to know about the basic French sentence “Ça te dit”.
This include a full guide of what it is and how to use it in a normal conversation with an audio example. But wait, we also sprinkled super useful stuff like slow pronunciation audio, synonym, dialogue example and more!
French people are using it very often when they want to ask: “Up for it” or “Would you like to?” or “Are you interested?“. It’s a polite way to invite people doing something with you by asking them if they want to do it.
That’s why it’s super useful in many social situations!
To use it, add “Ça te dit ?” after the sentence describing your plans. This way you’ll make the invitation clear, without being pushy. For example: “On va à la montagne ce weekend, ça te dit?” (We are going to the mountains this weekend, up for it?).
For the plural and/or formal form, use “Ça vous dit ?” instead.
If someone asks you “Ça te dit ?” you can answer by the classic answers like “oui” or “non” (yes or no) but you can also answer with something similar: “Oui, ça me dit bien !” (Yes, I’m up for it!) or “Non, ça ne me dit rien.” (No, I don’t want to do this).
You can also use the conditional, which makes the question softer and more open: “Ça te dirait” (Would you be up for it?)
Trap alert! Sometimes you can also see “Ça te dit quelque chose ?” which has a totally different meaning. It means “Do you see what I am talking about?” or “Do you know something about this?” or “Does that ring a bell?“.
