I studied Spanish as my major in college, and have travelled to Spain, Venezuela, and various parts of Mexico. I currently teach high school Spanish and teach private lessons to adults who want to learn Spanish. I make no claims to speak Spanish perfectly or even really fluently, although I can speak fairly well and enjoy it. I have a grammar nerd kind of brain and love getting into the grammatical details of the language.

comment How should I discuss my wife's due date?
@JoulSauron, in "Lo esperamos..." is the "lo" referring to the birth or the baby? In other words, if you're expecting a girl, would it change to "La esperamos..."?

-1 Mixing the present and the future tense is grammatically correct in the sentence "Si tengo un millón de dólares, compraré una casa grande."

comment What is the most idiomatic translation of “no way!”
I've also heard "No me digas" used that way.

comment Forming a conditional clause in present and present tense
@Laura's example is correct, but the sentence in question is not incorrect. They are different ways of stating a similar thought, but different grammatical rules apply to each one.
