    If you're thinking of allé, that's the past participle.

    if you're trying to say i go there often it would be: j'y vais souvent

    if you want to say i spend a lot of my time there it'd be: je passe beaucoup de temps là

    Why have you put an accent on the a? There is no accent on the a

    Yes there is. For the word for 'there', it has an accent. For the word meaning 'the' in front of feminine nouns, it is simply 'la'.

    I'd be more inclined to say j'y passe beaucoup de temps or je le fréquente souvent.
