"ça a été?" = How did it go? / How was it?
Literally, it means “it was / has been”.
Ex: Alors, la soirée, ça a été? - So, how was your evening?
Alternatively, you could say:
- "Comment était la soirée?" (How was your evening?)
- "Tu as passé une bonne soirée?" (Did you have a good evening?)
- "Comment ça s’est passé, la soirée?” (How did your evening go?)
- “ça s’est bien passé, la soirée?” (Did the evening go well?).
Ex: ça a été, ta journée? - Was your day ok? / Did you have a good day?
A common response to a question with “ça a été?” is :
Oui, ça a (bien) été. - Yes, it went well.
You could also say something like: Pas mal, oui. - Yes, not bad.
