  1. Hello. This is an amazing site.

    Question: at 6:15 you have a question ‘Que haces aqui’. Where then do we use ‘por aqui’. Que haces por aqui?’ isnt correct?

  2. Que haces aqui would mean “what do you do here?”, meaning specifically at that place. Que haces por aqui is more like “what do you do around here?”.

  3. I really like this website. I have to do weekend Spanish homework, and these videos are really helpful. Thanks for doing them!
