When do I use the subjunctive?!

Think WEIRDO!

These are the situations that trigger the subjunctive:

Wishes, desires, orders

Querer, decir, preferir, desear, gusta, esperar

Emotions

Estar enfadado que, Me alegro mucho de que…

Impersonal expressions

Es importante que, es terrible que, es una vergüenza que…

Recommendations and suggestions

Recomiendo que, sugiero que, aconsejo que

Doubt and verbs of belief used negatively

Dudo que, no creo que, no estoy cierto, no es verdad

Ojalá

Ojalá que ganen

Top tip: Sieze every opportunity to use the subjunctive. For example, in a speaking assessment, deliberately state a negative opinion in order to sneak a few extra marks in there (Examiners LOVE it).
