Is d'accord the right word to say okay in French or are there any other words that can be used to say okay in French?

In what situation can I use d'accord?

I need an example of d'accord.

    OK exists in french as well (don't write it okay).

  • “I need an example” “Vous avez besoin d'un exemple? D'accord!” Apr 24 '17 at 9:50
  • "Qu'il en soit ainsi".

    In English okay/OK is often used to introduce a new topic, not in the sense "I agree". For example, "OK, what can I do to help?" It is my understanding that "d'accord" can't be used in this way, but rather "bon" or "bien" should be used: "Bon, en quoi puis-je être utile ?"

In spoken French you can say :

  1. OK !
  2. D'accord !
  3. Je suis d'accord [avec toi].
  4. OK, je suis d'accord [avec toi].

But you have to write :

  1. Je suis d'accord [avec toi].

You can say OK in French.

'Je suis d'accord' means 'I agree'

  • You can say it but it does not answer the question. D'accord is the translation of OK or Okay.

You can say d'accord, but at least half of current usage would be 'OK'. Throw in 'okey dokey' and you'll lose your audience completely though :-)

  • I see a fair amount "Okidok" (with a pronunciation close to 'okey dokey') in SMS and other informal short messages from my friends, and I hear from time to time, so I don't think your audience would be lost by "okey dokey". That said, most of my friends spend a lot of time listening/reading/watching stuff in English, so YMMV :)
