Working with The Spanish Present of Subjuntive (B2-C1)

The use of the subjunctive usually appears to be quite difficult for the speakers of English. The reason for this is that the subjunctive is seldom used in English, where as it is widely used in Spanish. However, the use of the subjunctive is most logical once when understands the meaning of the word subjunctive as with the word indicative. This course is designed to consolidate the use of the present of subjunctive. Students will develop skills to use the mode subjunctive as contrasted with mode indicative, in conversation, reading, listening and writing.
