C'est ça...


Recommended Posts

Oh, "c'est ça". Yes, it's not always what you think, especially when you hear a ironical tone. Well, in general, sarcasm or irony means that the current sentence you hear shouldn't be taken literally. The problem for the language learner is: what does it mean, in a "ironical" way?

First, let's focus on what the "c'est ça" idiom means. Firstly, there's "C'est ça qui fait que les trains roulent.". Here, "c'est ça", simply means "It's that which makes trains running.".
Now, "c'est ça", is also used as "you're right" or "that's this". Now, the ironical way means more "You're right" in a ironical way. See?
