Learning Conjugations from the -masu stem is kindof awkward... as evidenced by, among other things, the necessity to put the irregulars into -masu form just to differentiate them. Weird that they'd teach it to you that way...
For the record, though, 行く doesn't conjugate into 行て. It conjugates to 行って.

I find that sort of behaviour amongst a surprising number of foreigners in Kyoto, usually the ones that have been there for 5 or 6 years, and assume they are the top of the heap. My better Japanese can help or hurt the diffidence depending on the person. Mind you, I was once swung at by one of the writers of the Lonely Planet Japan for being better, so keep your distance.
