How do I take a word from what the user says and ask them a question using it?

Hi,

I want to create a skill which use the previous user voice interaction to help form the next question?
e.g.
Alexa:What happened today?
User:When to meet Joe for coffee.
Alexa:Where did you go for coffee?
User:Starbucks
Alexa:Which Starbucks?

How can I do this?

If you are asking if it's possible for an Alexa skill to do that, the answer is yes.

If you are asking how to make a skill, you should look into applying for a developer account at Amazon.

Look into slots and slot types.  Amazon can resolve many user utterances to types that you either define yourself or are built-in.
