Marcher a l'ecole

"marcher a l'ecole" translates to "walks/is walking to school" so why was this marked wrong?

Hi Shamrockhill,

The question was -

You walk to school Tu ____ à l'école 

It means you don't take the bus, the train, or get a lift in a car,  etc. so, you can only use -

'aller à pied'.

Marcher à l'école doesn't make much sense in French.

If you said for instance -

À l'école , je marche beaucoup = I walk a lot in school 

it would mean that you do a lot of walking at school which can't be true as you spend most of your time sitting down.

You may say, however, -

En vacances, je marche beaucoup

Hope this helps!
