We are going to teach you all the things you need to know about the basic French phrase “Toutes mes félicitations”.
Including a complete guide of what it is and how you can use it in a casual conversation with an audio example. Along with the useful informations we sprinkled like synonyms, dialogue example, slow pronunciation audio and more!
This is a way to say to someone “Congratulations” in French.
Use it when you want to congratulate someone about an achievement, a success or an important step of their life. This typically includes: having a kid, wedding, promotion, business success, buying a house, etc.
When someone around you is achieving something and you want to congratulate this person, you can use: “Félicitations !“. For example, your brother passed an important exam, so you might say: “Félicitations !” (Congratulations).
In case you want to be more precise about what you are congratulating him, you can use “Félicitations pour + topic“. In the example above it would be: “Félicitations pour ton examen !” (Congratulations for your exam!)
This is the neutral way, but in case you need something more formal you can use instead: “Mes sincères félicitations” (My sincere congratulations) or “Toutes mes félicitations” (All my congratulations). This is particularly useful for work emails and formal situations.
And in case you want something more familiar, you have variations such as “Bien joué !” (Well done) or “Chapeau !” (Hats off) or “Bravo !” (Bravo!)
Finally, if you want a slang version, you have “Bien ouej” which is the reversed version of “Bien joué” and which means “Lit / Well done“.
If you want more variations, check the next section! But with that you will have enough for 99% of situations.
