Free Spanish Position Words

Positions & Places

WELCOME to the MyTeacherDave.com Positions and Places page!

Have you ever wanted to describe WHERE something is in terms of its position in relation to another item or, perhaps, the specific place it is?

For example:

“My mobile phone is ON the table.” 


“My school is FAR FROM my house.”

Well, that is why I have made this page and the interactive activities for you to become an expert in Spanish Positions and Places!

Read on to see EXACTLY what you will learn here…

* * * * *

In this page, you will learn to...

  • Ask where something is
  • Learn how to say “on the right/left
  • Use position words like “above“, “below” and “beside” etc.
  • Describe the layout of classrooms in a school

El pajarito está...

You are going to do a nice activity describing where a little birdie (pajarito) is.

But first, let’s do a quick check to see if you know these words…

Move the words in Spanish to the correct words in English with your cursor or your finger.


As you know, birds like to move around to different places: in, on, beside or behind etc.

Firstly, look at each of the drawings below of the pajarito’s positions.

Then, think of how we would say each position IN ENGLISH.

Lastly, try to guess which Spanish word of position we can move to each image.


We are going to do a little bit of writing with our new vocabulary. 

But first, let’s confirm that we know the meaning of these new words so that we can write them into our MyTeacherDave libreta (if you are one of my great students!).

You can have a 30-MINUTE Zoom class with me completely free. 

Firstly, we will meet each other!

You can explain what things about English are difficult or complicated for you. I will show you how I can help you to improve.

Most importantly, we will have a REAL class of grammar, vocabulary, listening, or comprehension – whatever you want!


Not at all. 

All materials are provided free of charge. 

The only thing you need is a good internet connection, and a laptop or tablet.

I am a Doctor (PhD) of Linguistics with Spanish and English now, but I actually started Spanish as a hobby 18 years ago with zero idea of the language! I made all the mistakes, worked really hard, became an expert (a Doctor!) and developed the best ways to learn properly and retain what I learned.

As a teacher, I dedicate everything I do to show you how to improve, love the language and know what it’s like to be successful with it.

As one of my past students said:

Dave gives so much time to your improvement and is really invested in your progress”. – Hannah Sharky.


All of my students report an improvement in their very first class.

This is because all materials and activities are designed to make you get better immediately.


This is a complimentary Spanish class with absolutely no commitment.

I hope you enjoy the class and learn with me.

However, if you don’t want other classes, that is completely OK!
