USES OF THE CONJUNCTION ‘WHETHER’:

conjunction, grammar

In English, With the conjunction ‘whether’ we are not talking about if it will rain or be windy even though it is phonetically identical to ‘weather’. It is a difficult conjunction to understand. It often creates some confusion and students shy away from using it. It basically has 3 uses:

1. Implement it to mean ‘sin importar si’. For instance, ‘we will go to the match whether it rains or not’ would be translated by ‘sin importar si llueve o no, iremos al partido.’ We could also place the conjunction at the start of the sentence by saying something like: ‘whether you want to or not, you will do it’ meaning ‘sin importar si quieres o no, lo harás!’

The other 2 uses will be posted shortly! Thanks for reading! http://www.clasesinglesonline.com
