Qu'est-ce qui....

Recently I came across " Qu'est-ce qui ce passe ?" and was informed it was a standard expression in French. I would like to know more about this expression (and any other related ones). A search of Kwiziq failed to come up with it. Merci d'avance,  Andrea

Hi Andrea,

The expression is -

‘Qu’est-ce qui se passe ?’  = ‘What’s happening?‘

Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson which looks at the verb passer and its derivatives including, se passer /to happen -

Hope this helps!
