Vais choisir vs. choisirais
Is “je vais choisir” absolutely incorrect, or is it just not as formal as “je choisirais”?To my eye, it’s “I’m gonna/going-to say” as oppose to “I would say” - the former being a more casual expression, the latter being more grammatically correct (and/or “more elegant” as some of the pros on here are fond of saying.)
This question relates to:French interactive reading exercise "Le DELF-DALF en témoignages"

In the paragraph, it says
'Si je devais associer un mot ....... je vais choisir ....'
Grammatically speaking it should be 'choisirais' ( conditional) because of the 'si + imperfect' .
The speaker is a learner and makes the mistake so it has been corrected in brackets...
For more information on si clauses take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson -
Hope this helps!
It does help, thank you!
