Jessi: Top 25 Spanish Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 3: Where do you live? in Spanish (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Spanish learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question Where do you live? In Spanish this is
Javier: ¿Dónde vives?
The first word in the question is
Javier: dónde
Jessi: meaning where in English.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) dónde
Jessi: Listen again and repeat.

Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Javier: vives
Jessi: meaning you live.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) vives
