Hi dear french learners !

I’m opening a new serie on disambiguations - have you heard this weird word before ? It defines words that appear to be synonyms, but have distinctly different uses depending on the context. I thought it would be interesting to illustrate a few of them graphically to make it easier to understand some subtle nuances of the french language.

Today we are looking at the difference between bon and bien.
Bon is an adjective, and is therefor associated with a noun.
Bien is an adverb, therefor used to qualify a verb, adjective or adverb.

Exemple :
Cette fraise a un très bon goût ! :strawberry:
Dans ce film, l’acteur joue incroyablement bien son rôle. :film_strip:

Hope this will be useful, and do not hesitate to let me know if you have some in mind that you would like to see illustrated !


This is very helpful, @cloecrettaz! Thank you very much :slight_smile:
