Pas de soucis meaning


“J’avoue” literally means “I confess /admit“. But during the last decade it became very popular among young generations as a way to say “Totally / That’s true / I agree / Don’t tell me about it / etc.” depending on the context.

It’s like a verbal nod used after a statement to acknowledge its reception and show agreement. That’s why it’s useful when you want to show your interlocutor that you are actively listening to what he/she is saying.

Finally it can also, sometimes, have a meaning of: “I didn’t think it through, but now that you say it: yes, I agree

How to use it

When you want to show that you are actively listening, when you agree with the person you are talking to, you can use “J’avoue“.

Example :

  • Il s’est vraiment comporté comme un idiot → He really behaved like an idiot
  • J’avoue → Totally / I agree / Don’t tell me about it / …

But also:

  • Les chats qui ont trois couleurs sont forcément des femelles → Cats with 3 colors are necessarily females
  • J’avoue ! → I didn’t think it through, but now that you say it, yes, it’s true!

Note that we only use it in the first person singular. So don’t use “Tu avoues” because it doesn’t have the same meaning at all, it means simply “You admit“.
