In english, we generally tack on "... Right?" come a statement to either check that that is true, or come seek covenant from the person you space speaking to.

You are watching: How do you say right in french

"The very first World War finished in 1918, right?"

"Hamburgers room the best, right?"

As I compose this inquiry it appears that there room two very different supplies for "...right?" The an initial example is to check that what you space saying is true. Most likely I am unsure if the fact is true and I to be seeking come clarify whether or not it is true. The 2nd example is very different together I am seeking the listener come agree through my opinion.

Is there a comparable French construction for these two cases?

Thank friend so much!

edit: many thanks so much to everybody the answered. This has actually been extremely informative and I want to say thanks to you all.

Ou bien, moins formel, "... Pas vrai ?"

Formal: n'est-ce pas?

Informal: non?, hein?

I'd often tend to usage "non" when I'm unsure of one information yet I think it's true, and also "hein" when I'm unsure and also worried, yet there's no genuine rule.

Example: Ce devoir était bien pour aujourd'hui, hein?

La seconde guerre s'est finie en 1945, non?

Formal is "N'est-ce pas ?"

But climate day-to-day conversation you'd speak "non ?" if your inquiry is affirmative. If your concern is negative, then it's "si ?"

Example :

Il fait chaud, non ? (Affirmative)

Il va pas pleuvoir, si ? (Negative)

“non?”, ou ~ above peut dire “quoi?” a la fin d’un expression comme “you know?”

All the other answers below are good.

I'd choose to include one various other - d'accord - choose this:

"You're coming through me come the store, right?" "Tu viens au magasin avec moi, d'accord?"

Best consumption is when you're trying to acquire someone's consent or agreement for part plan, like in the example.

"han?" In spoken casual Quebec French. (Local variation of "Hein"?)
