I've come across two ways of saying "here" in French:

1) Voici quelques conseils pour proteger votre sante.

2) Ce n'est pas d'ici.

When should one use ici and voici? Is there any rule or have I misunderstood the meaning of these sentences?

1 Answer 1


Voici is a contraction of vois ici, literally see here. You would use voici when showing something to somebody.
