*@alex-ma said in Français: avis vs opinion?:
Salut tout le monde,
I was just wondering what the difference in meaning and usage between "avis" and "opinion" was. If anyone can help, can you teach me?
Merci de votre attention,
Hi Alex :) i'm new here ( French who learns english ( almost beginner ) ^^) and i've just discovered this forum and your very good and interesting question ! ( many natives French doesn't doing the difference between avis /opinion while it is very important ! :) )
here is the definition from the Larousse (french official dictionary) Facebook page:
"The term OPINION means a personal judgment on a subject. An AVIS is an opinion resulting from a reflection and intended to be communicated to one or more persons in order to trigger an action. Example: consult the advice of a doctor"
I'm totally agree with it :)
Hope it's helps you a little bit to catch the subtlety ;)
