When Do You Do Your Homework?

Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or colleague. You are talking about things you do. The other person knows that you usually have to do Spanish homework and says to you something like: "when do you do your homework?"

In Spanish, the other person could choose to be less formal and say:
¿Cuándo haces los deberes?

Alternatively, he/ she could choose to be more formal and say:
¿Cuándo hace (usted) los deberes?

The question is an invitation for you to say when you do your Spanish homework. When you say when you do something, you DO NOT need to be concerned about the level of formality in the other person's question. Your main concern should be about saying when you do your Spanish homework.

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Hago los deberes los lunes (I do my homework on Mondays);
  • Hago los deberes los lunes por la noche (I do my homework on Monday evenings);
  • Hago los deberes después de la clase de español (I do my homework after my Spanish lesson);
  • Hago deberes todos los días (I do my homework everyday);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Cuándo haces los deberes?
