Ok. In my Spanish class, my teacher has told me that the word "a" is just a little "magic word" that likes to pop up in many phrases. One such example that I missed on a review, would be the phrase, "Does she know how to cook?" That would be translated to "Sabe a comer?" (I know I left out the upside down question mark) It's not a very good example, but the "a" did pop up in that sentence. My question is why that happens. My teacher didn't know, so I'm just asking if anyone else knows. Is it just there to annoy people? Or is it there just to be ignored? So please... SHOW ME THE SPANISH HISTORY!!! wit' sugar lumps on top! lol.
