why (mi) in (para soprender a mi familia) is preceded by (a)? and what does it mean?
Reading A1, Celebrations & Important Dates, Listening or Seeing A1
some verbs in Spanish require the preposition "a" when the object is referring to people, like in this case "to surprise the family". This is often known as the "personal a". We have a list with some common verbs. Have a look here.
I hope it helps.
Many thanks. It is really helpful!
