Pas mal de ...

Pas mal de ...

Bonjour, I've heard that one can use "pas mal de ..." to indicate "quite a lot", and I just want to confirm this is correct. For example: "Il y avait pas mal de monde à la fête". Merci ! Kathy

Bonjour Kathy ! Indeed, this is correct. You use the expression "pas mal de" (= quite a lot of) as a quasi-synonym to "beaucoup de" or "plein de" = a lot of. Here's another example: "Il a pas mal de BDs dans sa chambre." (He has quite a lot of graphic novels in his bedroom.) À bientôt !
