Hi! I started learning Spanish a few months ago! I’ve ran into two phrases which I simply do not understand. I guess I’ll just add any related questions that I have to this topic later on. My three questions are these:
I do not understand “con tal de que”. Apparently, it is supposed to mean “Provided that”, or as a friend put it: “mientras”. Mientras I can understand, but not con tal de que. How do the words in the phrase “con tal de que” all work together to mean “mientras”, or “Provided that”?
Since I started Spanish around February of this year, so I figured a kids show would be simple enough for me to understand. Well in the first episode of Bay Adventures, there was the phrase y ya, which, according to the translation means “that’s it” (correct). How does “and already” translate to “That’s it”?
