En not a

In one of the mini quiz questions the answer options gave en not a as the chosen preposition: never have I gone to Paris (it said en Paris, not a Paris). We can use either and they'd be right?

Hola Stuart

In the question we are asking for the right sentence for "I have never been to Paris.", and we give this answer:

Nunca he estado en París.

If we use the verb "estar" we need preposition "en", we cannot use "a". In English, you generally use "been to/gone to [somewhere]". In Spanish we cannot say "estar a [somewhere]. In order to use preposition "a" you'd need to use the verb "to go":

Nunca he ido a París.

I hope this helps,

Inma
