This is a word that English speakers use A LOT. The definition in the picture illustrates one meaning, but there is also another one: to emphasize or contradict something. For example: He actually believed her!

Actually is often confused with actuellement in French, which means « now ». So don’t forget, this is a false friend!

Here are some examples of how to use actually in English:

  • He actually told her he was vegan!
  • Actually, I’m not sure that’s right, here let me check.
  • Go left, actually, no, go right.
  • Did you hear that Vanessa actually told her boss to shut up?!

Have you got any questions? Let me know!
