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 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.
