  1. I am tring to figure out why you have an “a” in….. Nosotros asistimos “a” la universidad. I know its not a personal “a”… Can you help me?

  2. Well, some verbs have something extra that is required after them… asistir is one of them… when you attend a place or an event… you need to have the ‘a’ after it. There is no direct translation in English.
