The verb ir means to go. It can be used to indicate destination, or to indicate future plans (as in what someone is going to do.)
él / ella / usted va
ellos / ellas / ustedes van
1. To indicate destination, use a form of ir + a + destination.
In the example above, note that a + el = al. Similarly, de + el = del.
2. To indicate future plans, use a form of ir + a + verb in the infinitive.
Listen this song and sing along with the lyrics to practice ir + a + verb in the infinitive.
