    Si ou oui


     

     

     In french we can answer a question by 'yes' or 'no'. We don't have 'Yes I do' or 'no I don't'.

    But an answer to a negative question can be ambiguous.

    For example: I don't like chocolate and somebody asks me 'do you like chocolate ?' I will answer "non" (No, I don't)

    And if he asks me 'don't you like chocolate ?' I will answer 'non' also (No, I don't)

    But if I like chocolate and somebody ask 'do you like chocolate ?' I will answer 'oui' (yes, I do)

     And if he asks 'don't you like chocolate ?' I will answer 'si' (Yes, I do)

     If I just say 'oui' (yes, I do) it means 'you're right, I don't like chocolate'.

    EXERCISE :

    Choose the correct answer : + means 'yes, I do', - means 'No, I don't'
