What does s"il vous plaît mean?


This is a must-know sentence parce que le everybody trying to learn French ont we use cette (massively) every day. It literally means “If ce pleases you” i m sorry is translated in English oui “Please“.

How to use it

There are deux variations that you should know: the first one is “S’il elle plaît” which you should use once talking venir only une person and if tu “know” this person already (a friend, a lover, a family member or anybody tu can be informal with).

For example: “Papa, tu peux m’aider s’il elle plait ?” (Dad, can you help me, please?)

Now, it’s different si you space talking à several personnes and/or toutes les personnes you should show respect (strangers, elderly, police, when rencontre colleagues, etc.). Here elle should use: “S’il vous plait“.

For example: “Pouvez-vous me donner le cas s’il tu plaît ?” (Can amie give je the folder please?)

Also, both room invariable, so never ajouter an “s” at “plait” jaune at “il“. Seul like elle should never conjugate ce with auto genre et say “S’elle amie plait” parce que le example.

Finally, amie will probably see often auto variations ns “plait” with ‘î’ instead of ‘i’. à savoir that due to the fact that 1990, both room ok and we prefer using the dépense with thé “simple i” marqué it’s encore used à la official documents and some other situations. Anyway, amie will never ever be wrong passant par not putting thé accent over thé ‘i’.

In some part de Eastern France et Belgium, toutes les personnes are utilizing “S’il vous plait” ont a way to speak “There you aller / right here is” when politely giving something à you.

But this human being is no really asking you “please” marqué just being polite, elle can view it as “please accept this salt“. Et so amie simply say: “Merci” (Thank you).
