Vous prenez la rue de Vaugirard a(with the accent) gauche jusqu'au boulevard Saint-Germain.

Does it mean to take the road of Vaugirard and turn right on boulevard Saint-Germain or take the road Vaugirard which is on the right until you reach Saint-Germain?

  • French -

    Salut, Miche! "à gauche" means to the LEFT.

    right = à droit

    left = à gauche

    straight ahead = tout droit

    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>

    synonym see AWKWARD

    so it means to the left not turning left?
    then how would you say turn left/right on some street?

  • French -

    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.....
