Is this homework? Why don't you say how you think that it should be said and that way someone can critique it for you. Trust me. You'll learn it better if you give it a try yourself first. - Izanoni1, SEP 2, 2009

Quick follow up question, if you please.

My guess was "¿Dónde eres?" Is there a general rule about why it needs the "de" in the front, or should I just remember that phrase?

When you have another question, please open another thread and not just "add on" to your existing one.

De donde eres, or if they are older then use De donde es usted? You can also say Donde naciste? But if they are older than you then i reccommend you say Donde nacio?

Como te llamas. If they are older then use Como se llama usted.

Adonde vas? If they are older then use Adonde va usted?
