W-Fragen

Hi everyone!!! Sorry about the hiatus in my posts… 😦 Today I want to talk about something that let me very confused sometimes: W-Fragen!!! Once I was learning about directions in German class, when I was living in Germany, and my teacher asked me to ask “Where is the classroom?“, and I said: ,,Wer ist der Unterricht?” Have you noticed my mistake?! Yeaaah, you are right… I was asking “Who is the classroom?” HAHAHAHAHA! And he got confused and asked me again… and again… and then he realized that I was confusing German with English… because “Wer” means who and “Wo” means where. So here are some examples for you to not get confused too:
