Hi there, you have to be careful how you enter your posts, you showed up 3 times with the same question. Anyway it means 'as soon as'. Does that help?

Nsarmientor, bienvenidos al foro.

En cuanto means as soon as. In this phrase it probably means as soon as I entered the house the telephone rang. In which case entré is missing an accent mark.

It isn't clear from your usage of English that English is your native tongue. If it is please take a moment to read The Forum Rules and get acquainted with them. If it is not then please contact someone to find a translated version of the rules.

Please do not post the same question twice, and especially not within one minute of posting the first one.
