Bonjour Olivia, The expression is "avoir de la chance," as shown in the example "Nous avons de la chance." Also, J'ai de la chance, Tu as de la chance, etc. But when you change it to a negative, "de la" changes to "de": Nous n'avons pas de chance, Je n'ai pas de chance, Tu n'as pas de chance, etc. Here's a lesson: https://www.french-test.com/my-languages/french/view/23
