se va or irse having another meaning

in one of the examples,

Verás, el chico se va a enfadar y va a coger y le va a dar un puñetazo.

You'll see, the guy is going to get cross and he's going to go and give him a punch.


where does 'se va + a' comes from? is this irse with other meanings?

Could you direct me to the appropriate lesson?

thanks

Hola Ashlyn

Some verbs are pronominal, meaning that they are used with reflexive pronouns. This is the case of "enfadarse" (to get cross), therefore that "se" is the reflexive pronoun. You can place it in the beginning as we did here: el chico se va a enfadar, or you can place it at the end attached to the infinitive: el chico va a enfadarse.

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos
