Learning French III : Oui, Non, C'est la Vie


Two very important words in any language are "YES" and "NO".One will always require these two words to make small conversations. Even if you do can not speak a language, just understand it little bit, you can make workable conversation by just using these two words. French translations for these two words are:
YES = Oui
NO = Non
As I mentioned in earlier post, if a word ends with a consonant  then that consonant is not pronounced in French. So, Non is pronounced pretty much like "NO" in English. I would advice to use Google translator to understand the pronunciation for "YES" i.e. Oui. To end the post I would introduce to a sentence that is very well known around the world.
C'est la Vie = That's life
Here, C'est = that is
and Vie = life
la used before vie is an article like English has "a" or "The"
