9 Ways To Say Get Well Soon in French

Many of you would like to say get well soon in French to your French friends. Let’s see how to wish a prompt recovery, say get better, take care in French.

In English, there are many ways to wish someone to get better: get better soon, get healthy, prompt recovery etc…

But how do you say “get well soon” in French?

Here are some sentences you can use in French to wish someone well in French:

1 – Get Well in French

(Je te/vous souhaite un) bon rétablissement.

This is how we say ‘get well’ in French: ‘get well soon’, ‘speedy recovery’… it conveys all these ideas. “Bon rĂ©tablissement” is probably the most common expression used in French to say ‘get well’.

You can skip the first part of the sentence and just say “bon rĂ©tablissement” in a text or short message.

2 – Get Well Soon in French

Je te/vous souhaite un prompt rétablissement.

The French adjective “prompt” is quite formal but still used.

For some reason, it’s not common to say: “rĂ©tablissement rapide”… maybe the repetition of the R is not pleasant to our French ear!! I don’t know why that is but the common French expression for ‘speedy recovery’ is “prompt rĂ©tablissement”…

3 – Speedy Recovery in French

(Je te/vous souhaite une) convalescence rapide.

That’s another way to say (I wish you a) speedy recovery in French. “La convalescence” is actually the time you are recovering from a sickness. So, that’s an exact translation of ‘fast recovery’, yet, “prompt rĂ©tablissement” is more common in French. “Convalescence” is a bit too medical maybe…

4 – I Hope you’ll get Better Quickly in French

J’espĂšre que tu iras / vous irez mieux trĂšs vite.

Remember for everything that has to do with how someone is doing/feeling, we use the French verb “aller”, here in the French future tense.

5 – Take Good Care of Yourself (When Sick)

Soigne-toi bien (soignez-vous bien) et bon rétablissement.

This is how we’d say in French take good care of yourself and feel better soon when someone has been sick. The verb “soigner” in this case implies to heal, to recover.

6 – Take Care in French

Prends/ prenez bien soin de toi/vous.

Another way of saying “take good care of yourself” in French, but this time the person was not necessarily sick: you can use it as a precaution.

As I write this article, the world suffers from the Covid 19 virus – here is an article about the French Covid 19 vocabulary. I use “Prends bien soin de toi et des tiens” – take good care of yourself and your loved ones at the end of my emails a lot.

7 – Be Brave! It will get Better now.

Courage ! Ça va aller mieux maintenant.

Another common way to encourage people who are sick in France.

8 – French Encouraging Words

Patience! Ce n’est pas facile d’ĂȘtre malade et ça prend du temps… Je suis dĂ©solĂ©(e) pour toi/vous.

Patience! It’s not easy to be sick and it takes time… I’m sorry for you.

9 – Good Luck for Your Recovery.

Bonne chance pour ton/votre rétablissement.

When someone is sick, this is another way to show your support in French.

I hope you are all doing fine, taking good care of yourself and your loved ones. Please stay safe!
