Writing questions with question words To write a Spanish question that begins with a question word (such as “how,” “where,” “when”), start  by pretending the question word is not there. Without the question word, you will be able to create a  simple “yes or no” question by switching the subject and verb. Most questions that begin with a question word are created exactly like a “yes or no” question, with  the question word in front. Take the question “Does she speak Russian?”  (¿Habla ella ruso?) Several question words could simply be placed in front of the question to elicit more information than  a “yes or no” answer.  How does she speak Russian? ¿C ó mo  habla   ella       ruso?   Where does she speak Russian? ¿D ó nde  habla   ella       ruso?

All of the above questions can be created simply by first switching the subject and the verb to create a “yes or no” question, then placing the specific question word at the beginning of the sentence. Some question words are used a little differently. These question words actually serve as the subject of the question. The question “Who speaks Russian?” uses the pronoun “who” as the subject. The pronoun quién is the subject of the Spanish question: ¿Quién habla ruso?...
