A question from Flavia from Nicaragua on the website.
Hi, Reza and Craig. I think (it) is difficult to (for) me use the present simple to talk about the future, for example:
When Reza stays at his mum’s house, he’ll be tidy. In Spanish, I say: Cuando esté en la casa de mama o Cuando me quede en la casa de mama seré ordenado.
I don´t say in Spanish: Cuando estar??? en casa de mama seré ordenado (It sounds weird).
For that reason, I have a problem to use the present simple to talk about the future, it is new for me.
I know that I have to think in English, but How Can I think in English if I only know to think in Spanish?
