"Summer is going to start soon."
Translation:El verano va a comenzar pronto.
I got a "tip" earlier telling me that comenzar needed a following "a"
e.g. Va a comenzar a llover.
Yet not , apparently in this form, if it is followed by "pronto" ?
What are the "rules" for when you use "comenzar +a" ?
(Actually, I think I've just figured it out. But I will still post the question in case there are others with the same question). I presume you use the following "a" when you actually have an action to start. In this case, the thing that is starting is "summer" and so no "+a" is needed ?
