¿Why is à used here instead of de ?
Penser can be used with à or de and changes meaning slightly.
Je pense à Louise. -- I think of Louise. (To have thoughts about something/someone)Qu'est-ce que tu penses de ce film? -- What do you think of this film (To have an opinion of something)
because the verb "penser" requires the à preposition. It's something to keep in mind and there is not really any explanation to that. - participer à
- etre habutué à
- aider à
These verbs all require the à preposition. You just need to remember
