Explanation:
He goes with Arturo. (if the one who goes is masculine).
She goes with Arturo (if the one who goes is a feminine).
They go with Arturo (if more than one person goes with Arturo).
Is that clear enough??

Explanation:
Ok, first of all, Luna is almost right, but not quite.

In Spanish, when this kind of wording is used it can means two things in English:

"él va con Arturo" can mean:

1. he's going with Arturo - future action (though the present meaning, i.e. right now is possible too)
2. he goes with Arturo - habitual action, i.e. always or often, etc.

You CAN substitute "él" for "ella" (he for she), but not for they, that would be rendered "ellos van" (plural), and here you've got "va" which is singular.

So, are you talking about a guy or a girl?
Good luck with the studies Brian & I hope this helps!

Explanation:
TranProz is right!!!!
They can never go in this context, as it would be "van". Thanks for pointing it out!!!!!!

"goes with Arthur"


Explanation:
In the sample, there's no article, so you can't guess who's (he or she) going with Arthur, just translate the obvious facts! (It can even suggests impersonal issues, like luck, etc.)

Explanation:
I'm sorry, but this segment is for translation INTO Spanish. The text you submit IS ALREADY Spanish, Brian. From the context you should be able to tell if it's a man or a woman accompanying Arturo.
