Indirect questions are normally used to be a bit more polite and it's like having one question inside another question, as in "Do you know where there is a supermarket?" = ¿Usted sabe dónde hay un supermercado?". In this case the structure is the same in both languages. Sometimes the structure differs a little, so you'll see that this is explained later in the program.
The specific question you're referring to probably comes from one of the workouts where you have to translate a short phrase and then we add words in the following senteces to form longer phrases, so you'll typically start with "¿Usted sabe dónde?" and will follow "¿Usted sabe dónde hay una tienda?", ¿"Usted sabe dónde hay una tienda cerca de aquí?" etc etc.
Hope this helps!
