SENTIR – SE SENTIR – and TO FEEL
How it works
The verbs SENTIR – SE SENTIR – and TO FEEL are often intertwined. To make sure you don’t find yourself in a funny situation when asking « Tu sens bon ? » (You smell good.) instead of saying. « Tu te sens bien ? » (You feel okay?), I put together this list. I hope you’ll find it helpful. Let me know.
- sentir …. to sense
- sentir …. to smell, to have an odor
- ne pas/plus se sentir (de joie) …. to be overjoyed
And then, you have the verb TO FEEL, which is very common in English. It may mean SENTIR, but not always. Here are some translations for TO FEEL.
- to feel …. sentir
- to feel (+ adjective or adverb) …. se sentir (+ adjectif ou adverbe)
- to feel aimed at/judged …. se sentir visé/e
