Prepositions of place. Beginners

Homepage: http://www.lingolex.com/spanish.htm

These prepositions will help you speak about where things are:
Note that we use the ver "estar" (not "ser") when talking about position.
Note: When we use a question word, eg "donde" (where) we use an accent (dónde)

Eg. Question: ¿Dónde está el gato?
Answer: Está debajo de la mesa.

Translation: Question: Where is the cat?
Answer: It's under the table.

Note: All the images refer to the question:
Where is the red dot?
¿dónde está el punto rojo?
