Va o van

You use va a disfrutar. Should it have been van since you are referring to gente, multiple people?

Hola Melvin

In Spanish, the verb forms "va" or "van" depend on the subject they refer to. In this case, "va a disfrutar" is used with "la gente" as the subject, which, despite referring to a group of people, is treated as a singular noun, hence the use of "va" in singular form.

It's a common feature in Spanish to use singular verb forms with collective nouns when considering the group as a single entity. However, if referring explicitly to multiple individuals with a clear emphasis on their plurality, for example, "las personas", "van" would be appropriate. So, "la gente va a disfrutar" is correct when talking about people in a general, collective sense.
