    Sort by:

    It's the same difference than between "certainly, probably and maybe"
    certainement = va surement se passer
    probablement = a de bonnes chances de se passer
    éventuellement = pourrait se passer

    Certainement ------ = in english " certainly " means :
    veut dire " surement " , Sans aucun doute there is no doubt , selon toute probabilité, mais sans certitude absolue je te donne un example :
    - es-tu heureux ?? are you happy ?
    - oui , biensur certainement , yes sure certainly

    probablement ------ = peut etre " may be " , there is a chance , ya beaucoup de chances de se produire. Example " Il réussira probablement dans son exament "

    Eventuellement ----- = possibe , peut etre , dans l ordre de possible
