Mientras y mientras que

It says in the lesson that you can use "mientras" or "mientras que" with the subjunctive to mean "as long as" or "provided that". Is there any difference between these two forms?

Hola Allison

No, they are interchangeable. They both convey the same when they mean "as long as".

One is not more formal than the other, and they are used equally.
