Pas de soucis meaning

Definition

It literally means: 

  • Pas → No
  • de soucis → (of) problems/worries

“Pas de soucis” is one way to say in French “No problem“, “No worries“, “Don’t worry about it“, “It’s not serious” or “That doesn’t matter“. It’s basically the shortened version of “Il n’y a pas de soucis” which literally means “There is no problem/worry“.

It’s a very popular expression that we use to reassure someone after something happened. Typically: to minimize an issue, clearing up a misunderstanding, or to reassure about our wellness after an unfortunate event.

Let’s see some examples!

How to use it

Or “N’y pense même pas, dimanche je dors.” (Don’t even think about it, on Sunday I’m sleeping.) But that’s another story…

Scenario 2: you are falling off stairs and then someone comes to ask you if you are ok. You might say: “Pas de soucis, je vais bien.” (It’s not serious/Don’t worry about it, I’m fine)
