Bringing Out the Flavour

Nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs … ho hum! These are the basics of any language and are as exciting as … as … plain loaves, I guess.
What gives colour to any languages are the phrases. You need to use phrases to bring out the flavour of French. Even if they are simple ones.

Here are three such …
1. Moi non plus
 Usage :
"Je ne connais pas cet homme." -- I don’t know this man.
"Moi non plus." --- Me neither.

2. Tout à coup
Usage :
Tout à coup, le diamant à disparu. --- Suddenly, the diamond disappeared.

3. Ça y est
Usage :
Ça y est ! On a fini. -- That’s it ! We have finished.
