Freeform Writing Exercise A2
It is the difference between -
... so we went to a shop = ... alors, nous sommes allées dans un magasin
... so we went to the shop = ... alors, nous sommes allées au magasin
Hope this helps!
I don't know about all of the text that you are querying, but this is a matter of "specific" versus "non specific"
Un magasin -- non specific. Au magasin -- specific. I imagine that the shop or store was previously referred to therefore au magasin (at the store / shop) as opposed to a store in a general sense.
Hope this helps.
Merci Jim et Cécile!
