To work out some the the confusion amongst some of those who have actually posted responses to this question, the might assist to view the expression damaged down.

You are watching: What does de donde es mean

"de" ? preposition supplied to suggest origin or source. Usually interpreted as "from"

"dónde es" ? "where is" (or "where are" in case of usted).

Notice the what you are asking climate is "where who or other is from" or more literally, "from where is miscellaneous or someone" (i.e. Wherein did the or that human originate) Although, in English over there is a pseudo-rule that says "never finish a sentence through a preposition," in Spanish this dominion is in reality adhered come which is why the preposition "de" come at the start of the sentence fairly than at the end (as is the much more common construction in English). By compare the use of the preposition "de" in the complying with responses to together a question can help much better illustrate that usage:

?¿De dónde es (usted)? — soybean beans de España?Where space you from? — i am from Spain.
