Asking concerns in Spanish is fairly comparable to asking concerns in English. It's really simply a issue of learning the vocabulary.

Asking questions without question words!

Similar to in English, you can ask a question without using any question words. All you have to perform is say it with a rising intocountry at the end. (Consider the distinction between saying, "He finimelted it." and also saying "He finished it?")

You'll typically discover that if the question contains among those individual pronouns (you, me, he, she, they, etc) the question will make it move to after the verb, however either way is fine.

Differences in between Spanish and English questioning

You can have actually noticed, tright here are a few differences in between asking questions in English and asking questions in Spanish. These are the primary differences between Spanish and also English:

No auxiliary verbs (hoorah!)

In Spanish you don't must use words choose "do" or "will" (auxiliary verbs). So there's no "will she come?", it's just "she comes?"

The essential part is your intonation: Rise at the finish of the question, so it doesn't sound choose you're just affirming "yes, she comes."


As you saw in the examples above, in Spanish you deserve to often leave the he / she / you / me (individual pronoun) out of the question. So instead of "You stole my iPod?" you'd simply say "Stole my iPod?".

Of course this doesn't make much sense in English, yet in Spanish each verb (choose "to steal") transforms to agree through the individual pronoun (he, she, they, etc).

So you can tell that it's talking around simply by looking at the verb, and you don't actually should say "you". Tbelow are a few exceptions to this, and you might need to clarify in some instances, however this is true the majority of the moment.

In Spanish you'll put a verb immediately after the question word. So rather of "How do you know?" it would be more like "How recognize you?"

Or you can also just say "How know?" because the "you" isn't really important either.
