Salut, dans vos premiers indices, pourquoi donnez-vous "Bonne chance" = "good luck," quand le meilleure reponse est "la bonne fortune"?: Merci.
: pour apporter la bonne chancfortune à tout le monde !
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
The two expressions we accept for 'to bring good luck to everyone' are -
apporter de la chance à tout le monde
apporter la bonne fortune à tout le monde
But if you wish someone 'Good luck!' you would only use 'Bonne chance !'
Hope this answers your question.
From the lesson text, I would expect to use "bonne fortune" because the sense is to wish good luck/fortune for the coming year.
To wish "bonne chance" has the meaning of good wishes when the sense is of someone about to undergo some potential element of difficulty /risk /hazard.
I used this term recently when a French friend was about to go to Madrid to study dentistry and the dentistry course was to be conducted in English.
