Exclusion of the personal a

Hola,

The test question 'She kept on talking about Pablo.'

I was expecting there to be a personal a in there... hablando sobre a Pablo.

Just wondering why I shouldn't think that in future !? :)

Is it because a preposition isn't followed by another preposition, or something else?

Gracias,

Hola Stuart

Yes, you don't need another preposition. "Hablando sobre Pablo" = talking about Pablo. 

Saludos,

Inma
