“Voilà” is a French interjection which means “There it is!” / “There you go!” / “This is it!“. We use it to express satisfaction or to highlight an achievement. It basically creates drama when making an announcement or revealing something.
Use it when you want to highlight something you just did, something you are happy with or proud of. Long story short: anything that deserves a little touch of drama…
We also use it sometimes with “Et” (And) as following: “Et voila !” to make it even more theatrical.
N.B: we are here focusing on the famous use of “Voilà” as a preposition, but we can also use it in many different other cases in a sentence.
It literally means “See there” because it comes from the words “Vois → see” and “là → there” but with it became just one word.
