Can someone explain the difference between il faut va á l'école and il faut aller á l'école? I keep getting the test question wrong using va...... thanks

In French, whenever a verb directly follows another verb in sequence, the first verb is conjugated but the second verb never is, and must always be in the infinitive. The difference In the example you give is 'va' is a conjugated form of the verb aller, and so since it is following another verb, it is incorrect. I hope this helps you to see the difference, and understand why the sentence is constructed this way.
Of course you are absolutely correct! Perhaps I should do these tests wide awake! Thank you!
