Where Do You Live?


This post deals with indicating where you live.


Imagine you are exchanging personal details with someone. At some point, the other person asks you: “where do you live?”

In Spanish, the other person could choose to be less formal and say:
¿Dónde vives?

Alternatively, he/ she could choose to be more formal and say:
¿Dónde vive (usted)?


Replying should be quite straightforward. Giving your address or the name of where you live should be fine.

You could say:

  • Vivo en Madrid ( I live in Madrid);
  • Vivo en el centro ( I live in the centre/ down town)
  • Vivo en el barrio de Gracia ( I live in the Gracia neighbourhood);
  • Vivo en la calle Montero número 25 ( I live at number 25 Montero Street);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Dónde vives?
