Talking about locations and directions

If you want to talk about, where you want to go, you can use the verb 'ir' (to go) together with the preposition 'a':
Andrés va a la escuela.Andrés is going to school.
Van a los partidos de fútbol.They go the the soccer games.


If the preposition 'a' is followed directly by the Spanish article 'el', both words merge to 'al':
Vamos al (a el) cine.Let's go to the movie theatre.
Caridad va al (a el) concierto.Caridad goes to the concert.


The question words ¿adónde? (where to) and ¿cuándo? (when) are often used in questions together with the verb 'ir':
¿Adónde vas ahora?Where are you going now?
¿Cuándo vas a estudiar?When are you going to study?
