vers

English translation of vers

The French word 'vers' translates to 'toward' in English. It is generally used to indicate the direction in which someone or something is oriented or going. It can be used in various contexts, including physical direction, as in 'Je vais vers la maison' (I am going toward the house), timing, as in 'Vers midi' (Toward noon), and more abstractly in achieving goals, as in 'Il travaille vers son but' (He is working toward his goal).
