Le Mot du Jour – partir au vert / se mettre au vert


Aujourd’hui il s’agit de deux expressions verbales : partir au vert / se mettre au vert (to go in the countryside for a refreshing break).

Exemple 1 : Elle se repose seul chez elle pendant que son mari et ses enfants sont partis au vert. She’s having a rest at home whilst her husband and her children went away to the countryside to recharge.

Exemple 2 : J’ai bien besoin de me mettre au vert. I really need a break away in the country.
