T'as

T'as

Actually I saw people using 't'as' in sitcoms, and I guessed it should be 'tu as'. Do we get to use that once we are more advanced? It's an informal expression, right?

Bonjour Charles ! That's an interesting question: indeed, "t'as" is the contraction of "tu as" (you have), just like "t'es" is the contraction of "tu es" (you are). It's extremely commonly used in speech: I mean, everyone says "t'as" and "t'es"! However, unlike in English where "you're" or "I'm" are perfectly acceptable written forms, in French you are not supposed to write the contracted forms, only "tu as" or "tu es". I hope that answers your question!
