Ira visiter

Ira visiter

"Nous irons visiter We'll go and visit."

I would translate this to English as "We'll go to visit." Would that also be "Nous irons visiter " in French.

Hi Paul,

"Nous irons visiter le Louvre et Le Musée d'Orsay la semaine prochaine", can be "We'll go and/to visit the Louvre and the Orsay Museums next week".

Or "Nous irons rendre visite à mes parents en même temps" is, "We'll go and/to visit my parents at the same time".

N.B.

Visiter for, to visit/to look around places of interest

Rendre visite à quelqu'un for, to visit people.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your explanation Cécile. I was having trouble with the translation of "aller+(verb infinitive)" into "go and (verb infinitive)", whereas "aller+(verb infinitive)" makes perfect sense to me as "go to (verb infinitive)". Maybe it depends on where one learnt English.
