How to Say "Where Are You Going?” in Spanish

How to Say Where Are You Going in Spanish

If you are asking one person “where are you going?” you can use either “¿A dónde vas?” or “¿Para dónde vas?” If it’s a person with whom you have a more formal relationship, you’ll want to use “¿A dónde va?” or “¿Para dónde va?”

If you’re addressing multiple people, you want to ask “¿A dónde van?” or “¿Para dónde van?” This conjugation will work for informal or formal circumstances.

Getting comfortable with the nuances of Spanish words can take some time. But remember, you don’t have to tackle them all at once. As you move forward on your language journey, you’ll learn which conjugation to use in each situation.

Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion® methodology teaches you the language by throwing you in. It’ll be hard sometimes, and that’s what makes it effective at preparing you to use your new language throughout everyday life. So it’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them. It helps you get ready to handle situations with confidence.

Learn Spanish Words and Phrases

People choose to learn Spanish for a variety of different reasons. Many hear the language in their daily lives. After all, Spanish is heard in popular music, movies, and TV shows. Other people want to learn Spanish based on their plans to vacation, work, or volunteer in any of the 20 countries where Spanish is the official language. Regardless of your reason for learning Spanish, you can get off to a great start by first learning how to pronounce some very basic words and phrases. It is an important step to understand and be understood by any of the 437 million people around the world who speak Spanish.

Many new Spanish learners focus on memorizing lengthy lists of Spanish vocabulary words and phrases. Then they become frustrated because they have little-to-no ability to participate in everyday Spanish conversation. That’s why it’s strongly advised that new Spanish language learners work on understanding and pronouncing basic words and phrases. This smart and practical approach to learning Spanish will help you learn to confidently and comfortably speak Spanish.

You should know that Spanish does have some pronunciation distinctions that can make it a challenge for language learners. As one example, the letter r is pronounced differently and takes some practice for most new learners. This distinct sound is formed by tapping the tip of the tongue on the roof of the mouth, about a third of the way back in the mouth. Some Spanish language experts suggest new learners practice making the “tt” sound, as it sounds in the English word butter.

Improving your pronunciation skills requires immediate feedback on your efforts. Rosetta Stone helps you get the pronunciation right in a snap with our TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine. Our patented technology compares your voice to native and non-native speakers in real-time—so you get immediate feedback for the most accurate pronunciation. It’s also adjustable, which allows you to tweak your accent as needed. TruAccent is a powerful tool for helping you learn and speak the Spanish language.

When you have a handle on basic Spanish words and short phrases, you can move onto the longer phrases you’ll use in everyday conversation. Rosetta Stone’s succinct, 10-minute language lessons are designed to lead you along this natural path to learning. You’ll first focus on learning basic words and phrases, then you’ll move onto learning longer phrases, and then towards learning to speak Spanish with confidence.
