Purpose between two verbs The preposition  a  is used to convey the idea of purpose between a conjugated verb of motion and  the infinitive that follows. The most common usage of this is with a conjugated form of the verb  ir  (to  go) +  a  + infinitive. Notice in the following examples that the English version usually is stated as  “someone is going to do something.” In Spanish, however, the present tense of  ir  is used, so the  sentence is really saying “someone is going to do something” or “will do something.” These  sentences in both languages indicate that something happens in the future without using the future  tense.  Victoria va a estudiar medicina.   Victoria is going to study medicine. C é sar y Mariana van a casarse.   Cesar and Mariana are going to get married.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
