faire les comptes – Mot du Jour

faire les comptes – to do the accounts. faire les comptes means ‘to balance the books’, ‘to know how much money who owes to whom’.

  • « Il faut qu’on fasse les comptes car je te dois sans doute plein de fric pour l’apéro d’hier soir. »
    • We must balance the books because I probably owe you plenty of money for last night’s cocktail.
