Futur proche (e.g.: je vais parler)

Questions about the Futur Proche

Q: Why is it Ilva partir demain and NOT il va à partir demain?

Unlike the English verb "go", the French verb aller is followed directly by an infinitive (there is no intervening preposition).

Q: Why is it Je vais chercher un livre and NOT je vas chercher un livre?

Remember, the "je" form of aller is written with an "i" and is different from all other forms.

Q: Why is it je vais manger and NOT je vais mangé?

Don't forget, the verb aller is followed by the infinitive; it is never followed by the past participle.
