Hola Ricky,

We use "al" plus an infinitive as a way of saying "when something happened". In this case, with this sentence "Mis amigos sintieron una gran alegría al verme.", it is the same as saying "My friends felt really happy when they saw me.".

Here is a lesson about "al+infinitive". Note it is an advance class, though.

[competency id= "6175"]

Also note: Al = contraction of a+el.

I hope it helps.

Un saludo

Inma

Hola,

I searched for the lesson you referred to in your reply above to Ricky: 

"competency id= "6175" but got no results in the search tab.  Is there a link?

Gracias, Nicole
