  1. Perhaps you know that conocer is not spelled properly in the first person singular below the video screen.

    great series –very helpful; nice balance and length.


  2. How come sometimes a is after conocer and sometimes not? Lik in I know the boy wouldn’t that be I know to the boy lol

  3. The “a” is used after conocer when you know a person its call “La A personal” or “The personal A” – for example – No conozco a President Obama, pero conozco su politica. When you know or “are famaliar” with a place or thing then you will not use the “a”.
