    "Bonne chance pour ton examen. Je suis sûr que tu vas faire des merveilles. Grosses bises".

    or more colloquial: "Cinq lettres pour ton exam. Je suis sûr(e) que tu vas réussir haut la main (que tu l'auras les doigts dans le nez:D ). Gros bisous partout:cool:

    Are you trying to say it in French? If so,
    "Merde (pour ton examen)!"
    or
    "Bon courage" or "Bonne chance"

    I was told by my professor that Merde is an offensive term, like in, c'est de la merde. How is it that it's used to wish someone good luck?

    In France, it is supposed to be unlucky to wish someone "bonne chance". That's probably why we went to the other extreme ? :)
