Correction of conjugated verb

The test question: My mates are not going to celebrate the new year.

HINT: Use Le Futur Proche

I wrote: Mes potes n'iront pas célébrer la nouvelle année.

Correct answer: Mes potes ne vont pas célébrer la nouvelle année.

If 'vont' is Le Présent and 'iront' is Le Futur, then why would my answer be incorrect?

Hi Lewis,

The futur proche is constructed by the conjuaged form of "aller" + infinitive:

Je vais célébrer. -- I am going to celebrate.
Ils vont célébrer. -- They are going to celebrate.

-- Chris.

Ok, I see the problem now. I used 'iront' which is futur presént, and completely forgot about the three A1 lessons on futur proche. Thanks.
