When she is assembling the plane she says 'venir' in every step. It doesn't seem to change the meaning of the sentence so is it just a language tic? If not, what does it do?
Ex. Nous allons venir assembler notre avion
On va venir prendre le deuxième baton jaune
On viendra l'appliquer à l'arrière
Reading B1, Art & Design, Celebrations & Important Dates, Listening or Seeing B2
As I see it...
The sentence structure is describing a very particular order sequence of construction actions.
(One cannot go to arrive at the next step until the preceding has been achieved)
1) We are going to come to assemble our aircraft.
2) We are going to come and take the second yellow stick.
3) We will come to fit it at the rear ...
and so on -- the strict sequence continues to the completion of each step carefully followed one after the other.
I think this is a particular style employed for this type of strict sequencing of each stage.
Hope this helps.
Makes sense, thanks!
