5/22/2022 - Si or Como

When should we use "Si" or "Como?"

With the sentence below, is it also ok to use Si? If not, why? Is it because Si triggers the subjunctive?


Como me ofrezcan el trabajo voy a hacer una gran fiesta.

Hola Sabrina

You can also use "si" but then you need the indicative (not the subjunctive):

Como me ofrezcan el trabajo voy a hacer una gran fiesta.

Si me ofrecen el trabajo voy a hacer una gran fiesta.

The structure using como +subunctive is a bit more colloquial.
