Difference between Vas-tu and tu vas?

I have a question that has been bothering me for a while. What is the difference when putting the conjugated verb in front of the subject pronoun? Like for example: Vas-tu or tu vas? Do they mean two different things? Merci xx

They both mean the same thing, except:

"Vas-tu," or the inversion way to ask questions, is more formal.

"Tu vas" is more informal.

Hope that helps and I wish you the best in French!
