What does the "a" before Laura means?

May 3, 2019


It's the definite article "the":


The use of the definite article before proper names depends on region, formality and context: in some cases it's always used, some cases it's never used and in others it indicates intimacy - O Pedro is your friend, whereas Laura is someone you read about in a newspaper. The best thing to do (outside Duolingo, in a place that speaks Portuguese) is imitate the way people around you use articles with names.
