Cuando + indicative, cuando + subjunctive

Hello! Today, in our express Spanish course, an explanation of the difference between CUANDO + INDICATIVE and CUANDO + SUBJECTIVE.

1. we use WHEN + INDICATIVEto talk about an action or routine that is not in the future

For example:

Cuando toco la guitarra, soy feliz / Cuando iba a la escuela, veía a mis amigos.

2. We use WHEN + SUBJECTIVE to talk about actions in the future:

For example:

Cuando tenga dinero, me compraré una casa grande / Cuando cumplas 18 años te compraré una moto.

What is your level of Spanish?

Take the test to find out which course is best for you.
