I did not see in the lesson or video where c'est could mean "this is". That sounds specific to me. What do you think?

This relates to:
C'est = It is -

Hi Ashley - remember that 'ce' usually translates to 'this' or 'that' (and "c'est" is ce + est) but it's not usually very helpful to think about what individual words translate to in English. Expressions like "C'est amusement" can loosely be translated as "It's funny" or "That's funny". The actual sense will depend on the context.
