Hi Steven ,

Je me sens mal or je ne me sens pas bien is I feel bad in French.

Je sens mauvais would be I smell bad!

Hope this helps!

Well, 'je sens mal' would suggest that there's something wrong with your sense of smell....

Hi Cécile,

So "Je sens mal" would mean nothing as it is gramatically incorrect then, is that right?
