We expect everything from him?

I think this lesson needs to be broken up into 2-3 smaller lessons. Since "On s'attend à tout de sa part" means "We expect anything from him." To say we expect EVERYTHING from him, do we just remove "à"? Thanks.

Bonjour Johnny ! No, actually in French we don't have different words to express "anything" and "everything" in this case. So you would say "We expect everything from him." exactly the same way. If you wanted to emphasise "everything AND anything", you could also use "tout et n'importe quoi", as such: "On s'attend à tout et n'importe quoi de sa part." I hope that's helpful!
