The answer I just got wrong was "Yo fui de la fiesta". Your note in this lesson says ser is always followed by "a"

This relates to:
Conjugate and recognise ir and ser in El Pretérito Indefinido (simple past) -

Hola Allison

The note in the lesson is saying that "Ser (to be) is not followed by preposition "a" but Ir (to go) is followed by preposition "a".

In the sentence "Yo fui a la fiesta", fui means "I went..." not "I was".

I hope this clarifies your doubt.

Gracias

The example is "Yo fui DE la fiesta."

Hola Allison

I do apologise. You are absolutely right. That question is showing a different preposition after "fui" as "went" and that is very confussing. I will remove that question from that lesson.

For your information "ir de fiesta" is an idiom which means "to party", that's why.

I hope that makes more sense now.

Thank you very much for reporting this.

Saludos
