Spanish interrogatives – Part 2

In this new post we are going to explain some other Spanish Interrogatives.

¿Cuál / Cuáles?

These interrogatives are used to refer to people or objects like cuál but with one difference, it does it to specific nouns or objects, which are supposed to be mentioned or at least understood by both, speaker and listener. We will use Cuáles when the object is plural.

  • ¿Cuál es tu casa? (Which one is your house?)
  • ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre oir y escuchar?) (What’s the difference between hear and listen?)

They can combine with prepositions:

  • ¿A cuáles de tus amigos ves más? (Which of you friends you see more?)
  • ¿A cuáles de las dos ciudades quieres ir? (Which one of the two city you want to go?)


Dónde means where and it is used in questions to ask the position in space of something:

  • ¿Dónde vives? (Where do you live?)
  • ¿Dónde está el gimnasio?) (Where is the gym?)
  • ¿Dónde estudias español? (where do you study Spanish?)

In Spanish we can combine it with prepositions:

  • ¿De dónde eres? (Where are you from?)
  • ¿De dónde vienes? (Where do you come from?)

Sometimes we use A donde only meaning motion towards a place (with verbs like ir (go) and venir (come) for example):

  • ¿A dónde vas? (Where do you go?)
  • ¿A dónde han ido tus amigos? (Where have your friends gone?)


Cuándo in Spanish means literally when and we use it to ask for a reference in time.

It can be used in direct and no direct questions frequently in the same way you use when in English:

  • ¿Cuándo son tus vacaciones? (When do you have holydays?)
  • No sé cuando vuelvo a España (I don’t know when I will come back to Spain)

Also in Spanish, it can be combined with prepositions:

  • ¿Hasta cuándo vas a estar en Manchester? (How long are you going to stay in Manchester?
  • No sé hasta cuando voy a estar en Manchester (I don’t know how long I am going to stay in Manchester)


We hope we helped with the Spanish Interrogatives. (Spanish info)
