For most cases where, in English, one might say "from…to…," it is most common, in Spanish, to say "de…a…." "Desde…hasta…" is used less frequently.

*"Cuando" and "donde," without accents, are used to mean "when" and "where" in situations when/where ; ) no one is unsure of, or asking about, a time or a place. To ask or express uncertainty about a time or a place, these words must be accented: cuándo  when(?), dónde  where(?)

todo sobre mi madre  all about my mother

entre la espada y la pared  "between the sword and the wall" (between a rock and a hard place)
