Salut, Miche! "à gauche" means to the LEFT.
right = à droit
left = à gauche
straight ahead = tout droit
Good English word taken from the French:
Main Entry: gauche
Inflected Form(s): sometimes gauch·er sometimes gauch·est
Etymology: French, literally, left
1 a : lacking social experience or grace; also : not tactful : CRUDE <it would be gauche to mention the subject> b : crudely made or done <a gauche turn of phrase>
2 : not planar <gauche conformation of molecules>
synonym see AWKWARD
- gauche·ly adverb
- gauche·ness noun
so it means to the left not turning left?
then how would you say turn left/right on some street?
Since you already have "You take the street" the "à gauche" means "to the left."
If you want to say "turn left/right" first of all decide if you want the familiar (tu) or the formal (vous) and then = Tourne or Tournez à gauche/droit dans la rue.....
