Que? (day 21)

The spanish word “que” has many diffferent uses and meanings.  Today in the language lab i learned the true uses and conditions of the word que.  Essentially que can mean; that, this, what, were, which, and who.  The uses of que truly depends on the context in which it is used.  For example, when the subjunctive is used que simply means that.  If i were to say, “espero que” i would be saying i hope that.  The rest of the uses are for relative pronouns (who, were, where).  For example, if i said, “Tengo el libro que buscas.”  the translation would be,”I have the book (that/which) you’re looking for.”  In this instance que is used as a relative pronoun giving it the translation of which.
