¿Cuánto tiempo hace?, How long time has it been since…?

Hace is clearly one of the first verbs you learn and probably use a lot all the time. When it comes to do something or to make something in english, you have to use “hacer” in Spanish. Clearly, in Spanish both verbs in english turn into just one. But talking about things “to do” and “decisions to make” in both languages, is necessary to add one use more: the time use.

The time function is a very common one and part of one of the first  questionsyou are asked once you arrive in a new country where people speak Spanish: ¿Cuánto tiempo hace que estás aca?, How long have you been here?.
