    Does

    "Vous devriez bien attendre . . . "

    Translate to


    "You really should/ought to wait for . . . "

    Merci d'avance.

    Is "Vous devriez bien attendre . . . " a real French sentence or are you trying to translate the English sentence into English? :confused:

    I would say
    "you really should wait":
    vous devriez vraiment attendre ...
    vous feriez mieux d'attendre"


    Depending on the context ...

    I was trying to check something I wrote at the end of a post.

    I've now changed what I wrote to "Vous feriez mieux d'attendre les francophones."

    So this would not be a place to use "bien" as an intensifier.

    Thanks.:)
