Other usage

The Other Usage box seems to just repeat what is in the box above it, but it seems like its supposed to point out some other usage.

Hi Rant,

The first usage of "Aller à " means to suit in the sense of looking good or fitting well.

The sencond usage means to be okay with something which is completely different.

On se rencontre à 14 h , ça vous va? we are meeting up at 2 pm, is that okay with you?

Hope this helps!

Salut Cécile,

Thanks for the answer. I do understand the two different usages of "Aller à", but I'm just pointing out that the last two boxes both have the same examples:

Nous viendrons à 9 heures. Ça vous va ?
We'll come at 9. Is it ok with you?

Ça lui va ? - Oui, ça lui va parfaitement.
Is he ok with that? - Yes, he's perfectly fine with it.

Bonjour Rant !

Thanks for letting us know about these repeated examples :)

Indeed, here they are redundant, and have now been streamlined.

Merci beaucoup et à bientôt !
