Uses Subjunctive Spanish

Values and Uses of the Subjunctive in Spanish

Subjunctive constitutes one of the basic topics of Spanish grammar and is one of the most important problems in the acquisition of Spanish as a second language. This course focuses on the study of how, when, and why the subjunctive is used in Spanish. In addition, it will also pay attention to other issues such as the values and uses of subjunctive in independent and subordinated sentences, and how theses values and uses can be explained by teachers of Spanish in their classes. The course will have not only a theoretical dimension but also a practical orientation, with exercises designed to improve the comprehension of subjunctive in Spanish. (1 unit)
