Why “A” at start of sentence?

“A mis verdaderos amigos los puedo contar”. Is contar like gustar?


Thanks a lot

Hola Shirley

The reason why we are using "a" here with contar is because we have a direct object that refers to people (amigos) and this requires the "personal a".

Here is a basic lesson on some verbs that use the preposition a. Have a look.
