El Subjuntivo con Deseo
The subjunctive to express hopes and
wishes!
• You already know how to use the subjunctive
with impersonal expressions (It’s good that).
• You also use the subjunctive to express a
HOPE or a WISH, such as when you want
someone else to do something.
• (want THAT someone else DOES something)
• Ex: My teacher wants me to study. A lot of
times in English we say we want someone
“to do” something, but what we are really
saying is that
we want that the person does something. In
English, this sentence should read:
My teacher wants that I study.
• TWO SUBJECTS with these triggers =
• SUBJUNCTIVE!
Mi maestro quiere que yo estudie.
(he knows what he wants….
but he is not sure whether I will actually study.
So you can’t use “ESTUDIO” because that’s
definite.
The word “estudie” opens up the possibility of
doubt or uncertainty because someone else
wants you to do something)
• The receptionist suggests that Isabel visit the
Prado museum.
El recepcionista sugiere que …
Isabel visite el Prado.
(she might not!)
The formation of the subjunctive is still the same:
Yo form, drop O, add opposite ending
1. The man needs my brother to work tomorrow (Does
the man need my brother? NO! He needs THAT HE
WORK)
