A1 - Asking questions about someone else in Spanish?
Asking someone about somebody else.
The first thing you might notice is that is in English we always explicitly say who we are refering to with he she or it in Spanish it is not necesarilly so.
¿dónde vive? Could mean Where does he she or it live?
It is not normally a problem because it is obvious from the context.
If you really want you can include a subject pronoun. eg ¿dónde vive ella? Where does she live?
We have included the subject pronoun in some of the examples but they are optional.
Another thing you might notice is that speaking about the 3rd person in Spanish is very much like using "usted" or the formal style. ¿dónde vive usted? Where do you live? (formal style)
Note also that "su" could be either his or her. ¿Quién es su deportista favorito? Who is his or her favourite sports person?
