il s’agit de – French expression
How To Says Prince In French

il s’agit de, or S’AGIR DE in its infinitive form, has many translations. Here are some common ones.

  1. to be, to be about
  2. to be necessary
  3. to come to

S’AGIR DE is a defective verb – It doesn’t have all the forms of a regular verb, it’s only conjugated with the neutral IL (no JE, TU, ELLE, ON, NOUS, VOUS, ILS, ELLES). Its structure is a bit different in French. It often involves a DANS.
