What does ça te dit mean?


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 to do something with you by asking them if they want to do it.

That's why it's super useful in many social situations!

How to use it

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 with 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?".
