Should the verb be avoir or passer, and have to the noun be un bon temps, de bons temps, un bon moment, or de bons moments?

What about

"I hope you"ll have actually a good time listening to the music!"

Should the gerund part be interpreted via en écoutant de la musique or à écexternal de la musique?


In France the usual expression for "have a great time" is bien s"amuser.

You are watching: How do you say have a good time in french

J"espère que tu vas bien t"amuser.

Variations deserve to be found according to conmessage.In your example I would say:

J"espère que tu passages un minute agréable/ un bon moment/ un séjour agréable à Marseille.

J"espère que tu passages un minute agréable à écouter / en écoutant de la musique.

If you"re going to a party I"d rather tell you:

Amuse-toi bien!

(Have a great time!)

Different expressions can be supplied in other speaking nations. Prendre du bon temps sounds rather quaint in France however it might still be common in Quebec (to be confirmed).

Both gerund or à + infinitive deserve to be offered after bien s"amuser or passer un bon moment. But according to conmessage the use of à + infinitive can be ambiguous with un bon moment that"s why I would just use the gerund in that case.

J"espère que tu passeras un bon minute à écouter de la musique.

might either suppose "I hope you spend a long time" or "I hope you have a good time".

Perso. je ne connais pas prendre du bon temps, mais je reconnais passer du bon temps. Avec un infinitif qui suivrait, on l'introduirait avec la prép. à; autrement il serait fréquent de voir un truc introduit par en, comme en famille. À l'oral.
