2 Page 387 Realidades 1 The Personal a

3 Direct Objects You know that the direct object is the person or thing that receives the action of a verb.

4 Direct Objects For example… I bought the shirt. Which word is the direct object? Right! The shirt.

5 The Personal a In Spanish, when the direct object is a specific person or group of people, we use an a before it. Thats why its called the personal a."

6 The Personal a Which one of these sentences needs an a ? Quiero visitar el museo. Quiero visitar mis abuelos. Quiero visitar a mis abuelos.

7 The Personal a The a doesnt mean anything. It simply is correct grammatically to put the personal a before a direct object that is a person.

8 The Personal a Whats wrong with the following sentence? Quiero visitar a el señor López. Quiero visitar al señor López.

9 The Personal a To ask who receives the action of a verb, we use A quién? A quién quieres visitar? Quiero visitar a mis primos.

10 The Personal a We can also use the personal a when the direct object is an animal, especially a pet. Busco a mi perro.

11 The Personal a We usually do not use the personal a after the verb tener. Tengo muchos tíos.

12 To Review…Use a Before the……when the…..is a ……. When the direct object is an…. Not after the verb…… Good!!
