030 Spanish Impersonal a http://foxhugh.wordpress.com/spanish/30-impersonal-a/ When the direct object of a verb (except tener) is a person, it is preceded by a.

It isn't used if a number precedes the object though. The pronouns alguien (somebody), alguno (someone), nadie (nobody), and ninguno (no one) require a as well, when used as the direct object. Veo a Juan. I see John. Conozco a tu amiga. I know your friend. Veo a alguien. I see somebody. Links http://www.ielanguages.com/spanish2.html
