Conjugate aller in Le Présent (present tense)

The verb aller (to go) is irregular (it doesn't conjugate the same way as most verbs ending in -er). 

It conjugates like this in Le Présent:

je vais
tu vas
il/elle/on  va
nous allons
vous allez
ils/elles vont

Although "on" is used to mean "we," it is a third person singular part of speech and is always conjugated like il / elle, which is why the answer was "va". It may also be translated as "one," as is "On ne doit pas parler pendant un film" "One should not talk during a film."

The translation of "On" was We. , not she or he. so how is the conjugation Vas?

How do we read the year in a date? how do we speak it?

Bonjour Jose !

There are two ways to say a year in French:
- you either read it as a normal number:
1820 = mille huit cent vingt (one thousand eight hundred and twenty)
- or you divide in the middle:
1820 = dix-huit *cent* vingt (eighteen hundred twenty)

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
