"Do you go?"
I understand the need to use correct conjugation. I should say that I have a German minor, and I'm using this program because I rarely have an opportunity to use my language skills, so this is helping to keep it fresh. If you have been able to see my account and can confirm that I have used the incorrect conjugation, I would very much like to know. I'm relatively certain I have conjugated correctly and still had the answer marked as incorrect.
ZyyGL wrote quite correctly and I would add this: Recalling Shakespeare's English (which was closer to German than today's English) makes it easier to memorize the German conjugation. There you have phrases such as Thou goest, He goeth. (Du gehst, Er/sie/es geht).
As to the plural informal "you" the conjugation for gehen is the same as for singular "he/she/it" (ihr geht)
Don't you read the "tips and notes"?
How do you post a screenshot? I read where people sounding like know-it-alls tell people they should've done that, and I'm not seeing any way to do it. I misspelled gehst: "du gehest", and when I hit enter, it said "You have a typo: ihr geht". It should've been "You have a typo: du gehst" since my only mistake was a typo and I chose du and not ihr. That needs fixed, but when I go to "report", there's only 2 or 3 options to check mark, and no way I see to actually report the problem.
Yes. This rule applies to all affirmative main clauses. Subordinate clauses, questions and orders are different. In questions, the verb usually comes first, if there is not a question word in the beginning. In orders it comes first, too, and in subordinate clauses it comes last.
The English "you" has three different German translations: "du" (one person informal), "ihr" (several persons informal) and "Sie" (formal, one or several persons; note the capital "S").
All three are accepted here, because the sentence doesn't have a context. Of course you have to use the matching verb form:
That doesn't work, because you need the nominative (subject) form of "you", which is "du". "dir" is dative. In English unfortunately both are the same word. But you can see the difference with other pronouns: it is like saying "Does him go?" (wrong) instead of "Does he go?" (correct).
"machen ihr geht" would be something like "to do you goeth", i.e. nonsense.
The use of "to do" to construct negations and questions is specific for English. Other languages don't have that. So you cannot translate word by word. Most other languages, including German, use a simple construction that resembles "go you?".
The problem is that the English "you" can mean both "du" and "ihr" (and "Sie" as well), because this language doesn't differentiate here, while lots of others do.
So without context you can't know. That's why all versions ar accepted here (provided they are combined with the matching verb form):
"Gehest du" is the correct answer.
No, it is not. It is "Gehst du" (you had an extra "e" that doesn't belong there).
And both "do you go" and "are you going" translate to exactly the same sentence in German. In both cases it could be
"Gehst du" (one person informal)
"Geht ihr" (several persons informal) or
"Gehen Sie" (one or several persons formal).
There is a big difference in "You" and "you".
That is nonsense. In English you don't have different forms of "you", distinguished by capitalization. It is always "you". Ypu probably mixed this up with the fact that such differences exist in German, e.g. between "sie" ("they/she") and "Sie" ("you").
