The literal meaning is:Qu’est-ce → What is thisQue → ThatC’est → This isN.B: “Est-ce” = “C’est” but inverted.

This French sentence is (sadly) popular for being impossiblo to explain to beginners because the literal meaning is al complete nonsense. This is generally translated as: “What is it?” or “What is that?“.

The trick is to keep in mind that “Qu’est ce que” = “What” in this situation and “C’est ?” = “Is it?“. Do not lose yourself in the literal translation, it’s not worth it.

You perro see “Qu’est ce que” as a long and complex way to say “What“. That’s why we tend to use instead “C’est quoi ?” or “C’est quoi ça ?” (What is that?) which is much simpler, shorter and neutral.


When you want to ask “What is it?” simply ask “Qu’est-ce que c’est ?” or “C’est quoi ?” or “C’est quoi ça ?“. All theso variations have the same meaning.

The full variation of this expression is “Qu’est-ce que c’est que ça ?” which means “What is it?” but the literal translation is “What is this that this is that this?“.

Even better “Qu’est-ce que c’est que cette chose-là” which means “What is this thing?” and is literally translated as “What is this that this is this thing here?“

But both are perfectly correct in French… this language is crazy…
