    How do you say "I hope you have a good day" using the "tu" form in french?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    You could say "J'espère que tu passes une agréable journée".

    Please note that all language names should be written with a capital letter.;)

    I must say, I am surprised at the present tense. I thought it was either : I hope you'll have" or "I hope you're having" - Is there an explanation?
    thanks :)

    :thumbsup: (c'est mon "stamp of approval" de ta bonne suggestion pour mon 2000è post)

    Ca pourrait être un problème de compréhension à la source (hum), et donc "you had" au lieu de "you have" ---> tu as passé une bonne journée

    "I hope you have a good day" has exactly the same meaning as
    "I hope you'll have a good day". Both refer to the future.

    I've always translated it as "J'espère que vous auriez une bonne journée!" but recently I've begun to second guess myself. Any help is appreciated, and have a good day!

    "J'espère que vous aurez une bonne journée!"
    ou
    "Je vous souhaite une bonne journée"

    Could we also use "passerez" une bonne journée?
