Conversation Starters

Cajun French English
Au revoir Good-Bye
Bye-bye Bye-bye
À plus tard Later
À demain See you tomorrow
On va se revoir plus tard We'll see each other later
On va se reparler plus tard We'll talk later
Il faut je m'en vas I have to go
Il faut je fais route I've got to hit the road
Soignez vous-autres! Y'all take care!

"Au revoir" is typically the polite form of saying good-bye, and it is to be remembered that the "v" here is not pronounced. So it will be more like "Au re'oir", or as some will say "À re'oir".

"On va se revoir" follows this same pattern, it is said "On va se re'oir"


Here is the ending of a conversation between Pierre and Dennis

  • Pierre: Alright Dennis, ben, faut je m'en va.
  • Dennis: Ok Pierre, on va se revoir plus tard.
  • Pierre: Ouais, soigne toi.
