"You are going to go?"
Translation:Tu vas partir ?
Can someone tell me why the Y is necessary when using aller? I thought that would say "you are going to go there" ??
Verb aller is generally not used by itself but with à + destination, even if only hinted by "y".
So I thought this was determined by whether or not it was an intransitive verb. But both verbs are intransitive....
How do you know what requires "y" or "en"?
"Y" is used with verbs constructed with preposition "à"
- tu vas à la piscine ? oui, j'y vais
"En" is used with verbs constructed with preposition "de"
- tu reviens de la piscine ? oui, j'en reviens
After years of studying French en and y never made complete sense to me until now...wonder why nobody bothered to make it so simple in the past...
It is not wrong, except that it is not from the same register.
strictly speaking, "est-ce que tu vas partir ?" = "are you going to leave?"
Since verb "aller" cannot be used by itself, ie without a hint of "where to"...
