How's it different between "go" and "go down"?
Great question. To "go down" almost always means moving to a lower place, either literally or figuratively. However, there are several usages where the meaning is "away" from the speaker's current location, in that case, the meaning is the same as saying "go". In the video "go down to the store" is being used but "go to the store" would mean the same thing as they both just mean going away from one location to the store. Ex: Let's go down to see grandma this weekend. Ex: Let's go to see grandma this weekend. Ex: Do you want to go down to the beach? Ex: Do you want to go to the beach?
