Around the world in 64 sentences - part 2

We were on a world tour in 64 sentences when suddenly the journey stopped. You must have heard that several airports including London and Paris were blocked because of heavy snow-fall. So I blame this long interruption on snow too. Thanks Santa claus you sent the snow when I needed it. We were in the middle of the ‘to’ crisis, how many ‘to’s are there in French? We have already seen some ‘to’s for a country,continent and a city(Lesson December 5). Let’s rewind a bit.


Preposition ‘à’

Je vais à Paris. Tu vas à Mumbai.


Preposition en’ used for the feminine countries.

Je vais en France. Je vais en Inde.

Time to tackle the masculine side of the world. What are the masculine countries?

Le Portugal, Le Brésil, Le Canada, Le Japon, Le Cameroun, Le Costa Rica.

Preposition ‘au’(à+le = au) used as ‘to’ for a country that has a masculine name.

Je vais au Portugal. (Literal translation would be ‘I am going to the Portugal’ but correct translation would be ‘ I am going to Portugal’)

Tu vas au Japon. Ils vont au Brésil.

je vais

tu vas

il /elle va

nous allons

vous allez

ils/elles vont







Costa Rica

I would suggest not to go to Canada because there must be a freezing winter, Brazil is a good choice and very soon it’s carnival time. Stop for a sushi in Japan if you have some time.

Our next break would be at the white house for lunch before leaving for tea time at Queen's castle in UK. Would you like to accompany me? then keep checking the schedule of this amazing journey.
