c'est cadeau

What does the French expression « c’est cadeau » mean? How is it used in a sentence? Listen to Anne Audio.

c'est cadeau - it's present, it's gift - without the article 'un' (a) - c'est cadeau is different from c'est un cadeau, which just means 'it's a present, it's a gift'.  c'est cadeau is an idiomatic expression often used to mean that you're getting something extra you weren't expecting, like a freebie. It can be from a store, a boutique or from a friend doing you a favor. It doesn't necessarily involve money.

  • « Prends des cours avec Anne et son site : t'as tout un vocabulaire et la grammaire du français d'aujourd'hui, et en plus, plein d'audios faits par une française. Ça, c'est cadeau. »
  • "Take classes with Anne and her site: you get today's vocabulary and grammar, and moreover, you get tons of audio files made by a native speaker as a freebie."
