This is one of those Spanish lessons that gets less and less important as smartphones get cleverer at giving directions. But there may still come a time where you need to receive or give directions to another person (maybe their phone is out of battery?) so you need to know how to do it.
Asking where something is
We've already covered how to ask where something is using "¿Dónde está...?" for specific places, and "¿Dónde hay...?" for less specific places.
For instance if you were looking for the supermaket, you'd use está because you're looking for a specific place.
¿Dónde está el supermecado? Where is the supermarket?
