Ca va? You'll have had it as part of that. But yes, this is the first time it shows up in this format.

"only the man is going" is incorrect ??

No, because of the position of the word 'seul', after the verb. The French word for only would have to be before the noun, ie the man. Only at the beginning in your sentence is an adverb, in the French it is an adjective.

My solution was: the man goes alone. Why is it wrong?

I would have thought that "goes" was a correct alternative.

This verb really confuses me. How does "aller" become "va" or "vas" etc? Depending on the pleural it's either an "a" word or a "v" word. Why? Is there a trick or logic to remembering this conundrum?

How does "be" become "am", "is", "are", "was" and "were". )))))))))))))))))))))

The verb "to be" is irregular in English. It's one of those you just have to memorise, I'm afraid.

I know, it was rhetorical question for TaraConklin and her question about the verb "aller" :))))))) but thanks anyway for the response ;)

Trick? No, you have to study. Study what? French verb conjugations. Why? Because they are veeeeery different from english conjugations.

This is the conjugation of aller: http://www.conjugation-fr.com/conjugate.php?verb=aller&x=-936&y=-274
