How to ask someone what their profession is or what they are studying.
¿Estudias o trabajas?

When meeting someone for the first time you might want to ask some basic questions.
What are some questions that we have already learned, do you remember?
-What is your name?
-Where are you from?
-What do you do?
We already know how to say if we work or study.
If the person works, what would be the next question?
What do you do for a living?
What is your job?
Where do you work?
Regarding work, you might be interested not only knowing where someone works but also what their profession is.
–¿A qué te dedicas?
What do you do?

- Soy mesera/o – I am a waitress/waiter
- Soy doctor/a – I am a doctor
- Soy diseñador/a – I am a designer

As you can see, we use the verb “ser” when we talk about professions.
Here is a list of other professions that might be useful for you to know:

Just remember to change the verb “ser” according to the pronoun.
