The "a" is a very naughty word... it means "to", basically

Voy a mi casa = I go to my house

But it may appear in other sentences, meaning different things, and sometimes it's not translated:

Voy a ver a mi hermana = I'm going to see my sister [the two "a"s aren't translated] Conoceré al delfin (a + el = al) = I will meet the dolphin [again, it's not translated]

But I can't tell you the grammar of the "a"... because I don't know it ;( It's my native language so I don't know grammar things like that


And "de" means from or 's:

La casa de Juan = Juan's house Vengo de Paris = I come from Paris


If you have doubts, feel free to ask me [but if you have grammar doubts, I won't be able to answer... just give me a sentence and I'll tell you if it's ok or not]

Well "a" means in most circumstances means "to" and "de" means "of" like yo voy a la casa de mi amigo, I go to the house of my friend. Does that help?
