Ah! then best avoid those...

Franchement and préférablement can be found in different places in a sentence. Take a look at the following examples:

Franchement -

Je vous ai dit franchement ce qui c'est passé I told you honestly what happened

Franchement, tu exaggères! = To be frank /honest, you are out of order!

Aucun de ses collègues n'étaient franchement meilleurs que lui None of his colleagues were truly/really better than him

Préférablementde préférence -

Nous irions préférablement/de préférence  en Italie = We would prefer to go to Italy

Il faut prendre deux cachets par jour, de préférence avec les repas = Two tablets per day, to be taken, preferably with meals

Cette fête aurait préférablement/ de préférence lieu le 26 décembre  = This party would take place preferably /ideally on the 26th of December

Hope this helps!

Hi  Sara,

What is the word missing between <   > ?

Hello Cécile, I think the system thought I was trying to code...! 

The word I was after was préférablement, but I’m also curious about franchement. Thank you!
