When to use "a"
Which is grammatically correct if I want to say, "The grandparents decided to leave/say goodbye."
1) "Los abuelos decidieron a despedirse."
2) "Los abuelos decidieron despedirse."
If both are correct, what is the difference between the two variations?
I forgot to translated in Spanish is: Los abuelos decidieron irse,diciendo adios. Thank you.
Remember, English is not translating the way is written. The number 1, is not correct. The number 2 maybe, But the way you wrote your sentence is not correct either.It should be: "The grandparents decided to leave, saying goodbye". I hope this help you, thank you.Have a nice day.
2) "Los abuelos decidieron despedirse," is the correct phrase.
