Tips to Make Questions in Spanish

Inverted Question Marks

One of the most distinctive features of asking questions in Spanish is the use of inverted question marks (¿) at the beginning of a sentence. This signals to the reader or listener that a question is being asked. Don’t forget to include it!

Verb Conjugation

In Spanish, the verb usually comes before the subject in a question. For example, instead of saying “You are going to the store?” like you would in English, in Spanish it would be “¿Vas tú a la tienda?” (literally “Are you going to the store?”). Make sure you conjugate the verb correctly based on the subject and tense you are using.

Question Words

Just like in English, Spanish has a set of question words that are used to ask specific types of questions. Some common ones include:

  • ¿Qué? (What?)
  • ¿Quién? (Who?)
  • ¿Dónde? (Where?)
  • ¿Cuándo? (When?)
  • ¿Por qué? (Why?)
  • ¿Cómo? (How?)

These words are typically used at the beginning of the sentence to indicate what type of question is being asked. For example, “¿Qué haces?” (What are you doing?) or “¿Cuándo llegaste?” (When did you arrive?).
