Learn the French Word Soirée

Soirée is probably a word you've heard already, as we have appropriated it into English to mean party or gathering. And that is one of its definitions, but soirée -- pronounced swah-ray -- can also mean an evening or an evening performance. It is also part of common French greeting.

Bonne soirée! 
Have a nice evening!

J'ai vu Les Misérables en soirée.
