A / à
It is very important to see the difference between 'a' and 'à' in French as these two words have different aims in a sentence.
- 'a' is from the verb 'avoir'.
'a' is a verb, it is the 3rd form of the French verb 'avoir' (to have).
Le garçon a un chapeau. (The boy has a hat.)
'à' is not a verb, it's a preposition. You'll find it after a conjugated verb.
Il est à Paris. (He's in Paris.)
- You can see that there's already a verb in that sentence 'est'.
Julie, pense à manger ton dessert ! (Julie, remember to eat you dessert!)
- There's already a verb in this one too 'pense'.
