Describing a Place in Spanish

Describing a Place in Spanish

 

Describing a room can be important not only if you are a real-estate agent or when you’re selling your house. It also helps people like friends and family, picture the places you visit on your travel adventures.

 

When you describe a room in a house or a place in the city, you will need to use two important elements: verbs (or actions) and adjectives (to describe).

 

The main verbs you will use are: Ser, estar, and tener. The following is the conjugation of these three verbs but, since we are talking about a place, you should use the conjugation of the third person (he/she /formal you. It also works for animals or things).

Check out this list of questions and answers you need when describing a place. Some important questions you should learn to ask about the description of a place are:

To answer this question, use TENER + ROOMS. For instance:

To answer this question use ESTÁ + EN + LOCATION. Example:
