Aller

Allez...Allez...Allez!!! Go...Go...Go!!! To and fro we go (Allez)!

Allez les Bleus!!! was the rallying cry when France won the World Soccer Cup in 1998. I was there when my brother-in-law (beau-frère) was loosing his mind with every twist and turn of the game (What can I say? Male behavior is universal!). During the game the Champs-Élysées and Etoile were virtually empty of traffic (which is unheard of!).

ALLER: (verb) to go

aller à la rencontre de quelqu'on: to go to meet someone

Allez!: Go!

aller à pied: to go on foot, to walk
