Hi Jennifer:

You gave an excellent explanation for “wo” and “woher.” You answered my second question also. And that was the word “her” at the end of the sentence. I had no idea why it was there and now I know. Thank you so very much.

Hi Gloria,

I hope you won´t be confused anymore with my following explanation of “woher” and “wo”.
So, in case you ask “Wo kommst du her” (woher is splitted as you can see, as “her” is placed at the end of the sentence. Other way to ask the same question is then: “Woher kommst du”. Woher is not splitted in this example, but both ways to ask “Where are you from” are possible.

Gloria, good question, I’d also like to know that

avatar Gloria Sunday at 5:13 am

I have a question. In Lesson #11 “Leave This German Taxi at Once!” from the Absolute Beginner’s S1 series, the conversation uses this sentence, “Und woher kommen Sie?”

I put the sentences and vocabulary words from GermanPod101 on flash cards and also made a note that the word “wo” means “where” but that the word “woher” means “where from.”

Now the “Top 15 Questions You Should Know for Conversation” has the sentence “Wo kommst du her?”

Would you please explain to me why “woher” is used with the verb “kommen” in one sentence but “wo” is used with the verb “kommen” in another sentence. I am confused, as usual, and I thank you for your answer.

Verstehst du mich Do you understand me?

Hi sk, Abdou and zhangqr.12 (… Wie heißt du?😉)

All of these are great questions! Abdou, yours would be “Kannst du mir zeigen, wo ich “this place” finden kann?” and zhangqr.12, yours would be “Wo kann ich das kaufen?”
