    Hello !
    There are several uses of "tout à fait".
    > Before an adjective, it means "completely", "quite"...
    "Ce que tu dis là est tout à fait juste". "Jean est un homme tout à fait tranquille"...

    > As an answer to a question, it asserts one's advice more strongly than a simple "yes".
    "Est-ce que tu es d'accord avec cette proposition ? Tout à fait" (Entirely)

    Hope this helps !

     

    Hi Heather,

    You use "Tout à fait" when you agree with somebody. Like: "yes, you are right", "correct", "absolutely".

    Here is a link where youbcan look it up if you want too.
