1 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.4A.1-1 Point de départ In Leçon 1A, you saw a form of the verb aller (to go) in the expression ça va. Now you will use this verb to talk about going places and to express actions that take place in the immediate future.

This construction is called le futur proche (immediate future). Conjugate aller in the present tense and place the other verb’s infinitive form directly after it.
