Hola Dylan,

  • With advent and other liturgical events, both words "tiempo" and "estación" can be used: "tiempo/estación de cuaresma", "tiempo/estación de adviento"... 
  • Entonces and Así que are synonyms, both meaning "so", for example:

No me gustaba mi trabajo, así que/entonces me fui. 

(I didn't like my job so I left.)

Entonces can also be used meaning "then", for example:

¿No vienes conmigo? Entonces no te doy el dinero. 

(Are you not coming with me? Then I won't give you the money.)

  • Suelo is the 1st person singular (yo) of verb "soler" conjugated in the present. 

Yo suelo ir al gimnasio los lunes.

(I usually go to the gym on Mondays.)

To express that you "usually" do something you conjugate this verb in the present and then the infinitive of the main verb.

There is no equivalent in English as you don't have a specific verb for this. They only way to translate it is with "usually".

It'd be something like saying "I have the habit of doing .... "

Saludos,

Inma
