When should I use the subjunctive mood?
Could someone please explain to me when the subjunctive mood should be used? I'm not clear on it.
Preferably with examples.
no hay de que
Oh, gah. I didn't realize there was a lessons tab. Sorry!
Thank you for the explanation, Eddy.
as calvo viejo has said, you can find the circumstances where the subjunctive is used in the lessons section. that's the beauty of english. we hardly ever use it.
The subjunctive is used extensively in spanish and it is worth knowing how to employ it. it's use does subtly alter the meaning of a sentence.
ahora buscaremos un restaurante donde se "coma" (present subjunctive) bien - let's go and look for a restaurant where hopefully one might get a good meal. ie question of doubt, hope
Conozco un restaurante donde se "come" (present indicative) bien - i know a restuarant where one can get a good meal. ie no question whatsoever.
Go to the "Lessons" tab. The first item there is a discussion of indicative vs subjunctive. You may wind up with some specific questions that you can ask here.
That's kinda why I posted this. I'm not entirely sure, either.
I forgot what subjunctive is do you mind reminding me'
