EL PLUSCUAMPERFECTO DEL
SUBJUNTIVO
(PAST PERFECT SUBJUNCTIVE)
The past perfect subjunctive
is used after a subjunctive
trigger and means ‘had done’.
It is the subjunctive of ‘había
ado/ido’
‘habías viajado’
‘hubieras viajado’
(you had traveled)
(same, but after a
trigger)
LAS FORMAS
To form the tense, you simply put ‘haber’ in
the imperfect subjunctive: then add ado/ido
hubiera
hubieras
+ado/ido
hubiera
hubiéramos
hubierais
hubieran
EL USO
• The pluperfect subjunctive is used
after any type of subjunctive trigger:
‘Era dudoso que Pepita me hubiera
dicho la verdad.’
• ‘Nos sorprendía que hubieras fracasado
el curso.’
OTRO USO:
LAS SITUACIONES HIPOTÉTICAS

with ‘si…’? The pluperfect subjunctive is used
the same way:

If I had more money, I would travel more.
(I’m talking about what I would do in the future if
things were different.)
