Bon & Bien

In this lesson we are going to talk about “bon” and “bien” which are very often mixed up by Anglophones. It is because they can both mean “good” in English. The difference being that most of the time, “bon” means “good”  &  “bien” means “well”.

  1. Bon
  • As an adjective (describing word), “Bon” modifies a noun and means “good, efficient, nice, correct …”
  • It has a feminine form “Bonne” and is usually placed before the noun.

  • It has no feminine form
