In the tip it says - Unlike in English where as if is often followed by a past tense in the indicative, in Spanish como si can never be followed by a tense in the indicative or El Presente de Subjuntivo, or El Pretérito Perfecto Subjuntivo. But there is a C1 lesson that is about using como si followed by the indicative. Is this tip incorrect, or am I missing something?
Yes, you're right, there is a C1 lesson for "como si" with the indicative, but the meaning of this como si (indicative) is idiomatic, not a literal "as if..." used hypothetically. Nevertheless, we'll check that tip and link the lessons so there is no confusion.
Gracias y un saludo
