    does "tet a tet" mean a sort of head to head conversation? does it refer to serious discussion or light back-and-forth conversation? merci beaucoup!

    a "tête à tête" is a conversion, most of the time serious, between 2 persons, but it can be used in a more light manner like "tête à tête amoureux" (a conversation between 2 persons in love). It depends on the context.

    Better ask a French teacher, not an English one.

    "Tête" means head in French and is pronounced "tet". So the right pronunciation would be tet-a-tet with a pause between each syllable since we are talking about three words put together.
