Why is the sentence fragment "J'écoute du Beethoven" and not "J'écoute à Beethoven"? When would someone use 'écouter à' vs 'écouter de'?
Freeform Writing Exercise A1
The verb écouter is not followed by à or de. It is simply -
écouter quelque chose
In the example, the exercise gives you two possibilities -
j'écoute du Beethoven = I listen to some Beethoven
J'écoute Beethoven = I listen to Beethoven
I hope this helps!
