French Sentences:

"Il était là il y a une seconde"
"Qu'est-ce qu'il se passe"
"Est-ce qu'il vient avec nous"
"Est-ce qu'ils viennent avec nous"

"bah" in French:

"Bah" is an informal French interjection often used in casual conversations. It can convey a range of emotions or reactions, such as surprise, hesitation, or indifference. It can be used as a filler or to express a lack of a strong opinion, similar to "well" or "um" in English. For example, "Bah, je ne sais pas" ("Well, I don't know").

"là" in French:

"Là" is a French adverb that can mean "here" or "there" depending on the context. When used at the end of a sentence, it can add emphasis, indicate location, or express impatience. In the example "Qu'est-ce qu'il se passe là?", the word "là" adds emphasis to the question, making it more like "What is happening right now?" or "What's going on there?"
