Which French Phrase to Use For “It’s Fine” ?

Let's look at different French phrases you can use to express "It's fine."

Understanding these variations and when to use them will help you sound more like a native speaker and enhance your everyday conversations in French.

C'est bon

Use this when everything is satisfactory or when something is acceptable, even though it's not great.

"Ouais c'est bon, tu peux le laisser comme ça."

Ça va

Say this when asking or confirming if someone is okay, or to indicate that everything is alright.

"Ça va, ce n'est pas cassé."

C'est cool

Use this to express approval or agreement in a casual way.

"Excuse moi pour le retard."
"Non non, c'est cool!"

Pas de souci, pas de problème

These phrases reassure someone that there's no need to worry or stress. It's also a polite way to say there's no harm, typically for minor issues.

"Pardon, je l'ai mis à la mauvaise place."
"Non, pas de problème." or "il n'y a aucun problème"

"Pas de souci" is sometimes for "no worries", e.g. as a replacement for "Sure thing":

"Merci pour votre aide."
"Pas de souci, à bientôt."

C'est pas grave

Also use this to say that something isn't a big deal, or to reassure someone that mistakes are okay. Usually, it's used for mistakes that are a bit more serious than "pas de problème".

Often, when someone says "c'est pas grave", it means it's indeed a little bit "grave".

"Oh non, j'ai cassé le verre..."
"C'est pas grave..."

It's no big deal:

"C'est pas grave si tu ne sais pas nager!"

T'inquiète, t'en fais pas

These are informal ways to tell someone not to worry or stress, and reassure them that everything will be alright.

"J'ai pas appelé ton ami."
"T'inquiète, il s'en fout."

"T'en fais pas, il reviendra ton chat!"
