The "and" is superfluous to the meaning. In my experience, I have only heard it from people (some of them my relatives, malheureusement!) who have not graduated from high school, or who are deliberately trying to sound uneducated. Moreover, they usually slur the "and" so that it sounds like "... go 'n' visit ... "We'll go visit the Eiffel Tower when we're in Paris" sounds just fine to my ear, much better without the "and".
Interesting! Thank you!
Oh, well, as Winston Churchill said, Great Britain and America are two great nations divided by a common language.
I'm really enjoying the website and my French is improving rapidly!
In British English, we usually include the 'and'. And yes, because it is unaccented, the vowel becomes reduced - and yes, again, the 'd' is often dropped. We have a few epressions where we don't include the and - but they are often rude. ('Go boil your head! etc.) Vive la difference (sorry - no acute accent on my k/b).
