Hi Kelly,

In French ‘un point’ is used for a full stop,  the punctuation mark.

You might hear people saying ‘point barre!’  in a conversation, to mean ‘period!’ and end of conversation abruptly ...

Hope this helps!

Thanks you Cécile. So saying 1.2 million in french (1,2 millions):  "un virgule deux millions" is correct yea?

'Un virgule deux millions’ is correct but you will probably hear -

‘Un million deux cent mille’ more often i think....

Parfait, merci beaucoup  :)
