¿Dónde vives? – Saying where you live – Coffee Break Spanish To Go Episode 1.04

To say “I live in…” in Spanish you say vivo en…. In this episode of Coffee Break Spanish To Go, Marina asks the question, ¿Dónde vives? (informal) or ¿Dónde vive usted? (formal). You can use the answers of our interviewees to help you learn to say where you’re from in Spanish.

In the first part of the video, watch the interviews without subtitles and try to understand. In the second part of the video, we’ve provided subtitles in Spanish at the top of the screen. You can choose to turn on subtitles in English using the Subtitles/CC button.

In this first series of Coffee Break Spanish To Go, Marina is in the city of Málaga, in the south of Spain, and in each episode she’ll ask passers-by one question. Of course, that one question will result in many answers, and it’s through these answers that you can practise your Spanish and build your vocabulary.

Coffee Break Spanish To Go will be published every two weeks on YouTube, and each Season will be filmed in a different part of the Spanish-speaking world. If you’d prefer not to wait for all 10 lessons of Season 1 to be published, you can access downloadable versions of the videos along with audio versions and lesson notes / transcripts in the Coffee Break Academy: click here for more information.

Coffee Break Spanish To Go is based on the popular podcast series and online course Coffee Break Spanish. For access to the free podcasts, please click here.
