FR: ce que ça fait à une fille d'entendre ça


New Member
Hello everyone,

I watched a TV show called Skam, here is one of the dialogue:
"Tu sais ce que ça fait à une fille d'entendre ça venant d'un mec comme toi? "

My question is "une fille d'entendre ça?"
is it correct grammar? it's like "d'entendre ça" become adjective?

    Hello, and welcome to this forum,

    This sentence is perfectly correct and it takes breaking it down into its root components to understand it:

    "Tu sais ce que ça fait d'entendre ça?" = main sentence
    "à une fille" = object (an indirect object) of the underlined part above, which may be located at several places in such a sentence
    "venant d'un mec comme toi?" = only an extra bit here

    I hope this will make the structure of this sentence a bit clearer. And it is correct.
