The Present Subjunctive

The present subjunctive is formed by taking the 1st person singular present tense form of a verb, dropping the "o" ending, and then adding the new present subjunctive ending.

Here are the endings for regular verbs that end in -ar.

  singular plural
first person e emos
second person es is
third person e en

 

For example, we would take the 1st-person singular of "hablar" (present tense) which would be hablo. We would drop the "o" and add the following endings:

yo hable
t hables
l/ella/usted hable
nosotros hablemos
vosotros hablis
ellos/ellas/ustedes habl
en

 

 

Here are the endings for regular verbs that end in -er or -ir.

  singular plural
first person a amos
second person as is
third person a an

 

yo beba
t bebas
l/ella/usted beba
nosotros bebamos
vosotros bebis
ellos/ellas/ustedes beban
