Spanish Subjunctive Present: wishes

To express wishes in Spanish, we use the subjunctive present. Want to know how to use it?

The present subjunctive is one of the most difficult verb forms for students of Spanish. Not because it is a very complicated form or has many irregular verbs, but because its use can sometimes be quite confusing. But, there is one of these uses that you will never forget, and that is to express wishes:

Quiero que + PRESENTE DE SUBJUNTIVO

Deseo que + PRESENTE DE SUBJUNTIVO

Espero que + PRESENTE DE SUBJUNTIVO

Ojalá (que) + PRESENTE DE SUBJUNTIVO

For example:

  • Quiero que vengas a mi fiesta de cumpleaños.
  • Espero que no llueva esta tarde, así podremos salir de compras.
