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.

I spent 3 months at the Taronja School and had the best time ever! I started from scratch but the school and its methods taught me Spanish very well. You can make a lot of friends through the activities and experience a lot of culture for a small price. I'd recommend going there for your Spanish studies as well as for the fun.

I have been to Taronja School for four weeks during June/July and I really enjoyed it. The professors are all young and well prepared. The teaching methodology is very good. The proposed activities were good and permits you to meet people from foreign countries and improve your language skills. I recommend it 🙂

I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 weeks at Taronja ( intensive course sept.-nov. 2017). After two years of studying Spanish at university, I by far made the biggest jump in my level of Spanish at Taronja. The classes are a good mix of grammar and culture, taught by enthusiastic teachers. In a short period of time, my speaking and understanding of grammar improved dramatically, as well as my general confidence using Spanish. The school also arranges a wide variety of interesting and fun activities that all involve present the opportunity to practise Spanish, to some extent. Valencia itself is the perfect city, with something for everyone of all ages. I could not speak higher of the school and my time there, I really do recommend Taronja, and I cannot wait to go back later on this summer!

Taronja is a really nice school to learn Spanish. I would definitely recommend this when you are looking for a opportunity to study Spanish in Spain. The atmosphere is very chill and friendly, teachers like teaching and helping you. They also offer lots of fun activities everyday which you can participate in voluntarily. This helps you in meeting so many new people. I really enjoyed my time at Taronja, and I would like to return if I can 😉
