Allez les blues!

Géraldine Lepère, Oct 10

The normal use of ALLER is the verb ‘to go’, or it’s used with an infinitive to turn a verb into a future tense - “Vous allez manger chez nous?”.

It’s also used as “Allez”, meaning “Come on”, or “Let’s go”, or even “Go Away”.

A phrase you might hear this Sunday night during the rugby is “Allez les blues!”, meaning “Come on France!”

Watch Géraldine’s video to the learn the subtleties of how to use this phrase. See more from Géraldine Lepère on
