How to Ask Questions in Spanish

After learning common vocabulary to introduce yourself in Spanish, it is very useful to learn how to ask basic questions.


In Spanish, we use words that are called pronombres interrogativos (interrogative pronouns). These words have more or less the same use in English as in Spanish. Let's take a look:


Interrogative pronouns in Spanish

  • Qué = what

  • Cuál/cuáles = which

  • Quién/quiénes = who

  • Cómo = how

  • Dónde = where

  • Cuándo = when

  • Cuánto (-a)/Cuántos (-as) = how much / how many

  • Por qué = why


Now, let's use each of these words in a sentence:

  • ¿Qué te gusta hacer los fines de semana? = What do you like to do on the weekends?
