C’est Reparti – Mot Du Jour

here we go again – French expression

What does ” c’est reparti ” mean? How do you say ‘ here we go again ’ in French? How is it pronounced? How is it used in a French sentence? Listen to Anne, a French native say it at FrenchHour.com.

c’est reparti comme en 40 – it’s to leave again like in 40. 40 (quarante) is the year 1940 during the second world war. I’m not sure why we use this expression in such a way, but c’est reparti comme en 40 expresses the idea that something big and difficult is starting again. c’est reparti comme en 40 means ‘brace yourself’ or ‘here we go again’ in everyday French.

There is an older version of this expression: c’est reparti comme en 14, beginning of WW1.

  • « Aïe aïe aïe ! La rentrée arrive et il va falloir se battre pour trouver toutes les fournitures à temps. C’est reparti comme en 40 ! »
    • “Oh dear ! Back-to-school is here and we’ll have to fight to find all the school supplies on time. Here we go again!”
