How to ask "Where" in Spanish

Learn how to ask "where" in Spanish

To ask where in Spanish we use the interrogative adverb "dónde".

 

¿Dónde...?

Have a look at the following examples. Notice how we always place the interrogative dónde at the beginning of the interrogative direct sentence:

¿Dónde están mis llaves?Where are my keys?

¿Dónde hay una farmacia?Where is there a pharmacy?

¿Dónde puedo comprar cerveza?Where can I buy beer?

¿Dónde vive Víctor?Where does Victor live?

¿Dónde está tu hermano?Where is your brother?

Remember: the interrogative dónde has a written accent on the o and that syllable is stressed when making a question.
