You are going to learn everything you have to know about the basic phrase “Je veux du soleil”.
It includes a full guide of what it is and how you can use it in everyday life with an audio example. Plus, we also added some super useful stuff like slow pronunciation audio, dialogue example, synonyms and more!
It literally means:
We use it to complain about the lack of good weather, during winter and more generally when it’s cold or raining. This is a very common sentence when talking about the weather among French people.
You can say it as an icebreaker to launch a new topic of conversation.
For example: it has been raining for weeks and you are craving for your natural dose of vitamin D, then you might say: “J’en ai marre de la pluie, je veux du soleil !” (I’m tired of rain, I want some sun!)
Or you can use it to answer someone who asks you how you feel or what you want.
For example: someone asks “Comment ça va en ce moment ?” (How do you feel recently?) and you answer “Pas top, je veux du soleil !” (Not that great, I want some sun!)
