Para and "a"

Para and "a"

Hola,

The question was ¿Vas _casa de Inéz? Both "para" and "a" were given as correct answers but in the lesson above, the use of "a" is given as also acceptable when associated with the verb "Llevar." I would have used "a" instinctively when talking about a destination but was put off using this because of the instruction.

I think there is something about "destination" that I am not understanding. Can you help?

Saludos

Hola John,

The note in the lesson is saying this, after showing different examples with different verbs:

"Note that in this specific use of para, the preposition a is also acceptable."

Then we show a sentence with llegar using para and a, with the same meaning.

The  note is referring to all verbs, not llevar. The examples with llevar were only ilustrating an example. 

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos
