Spanish Subjunctive Regular Verbs

Present Subjunctive Tense for Regular Verbs

Like in the Present indicative, a regular verb is when the stem does not change, well here we have the same.  Use the same set of subjunctives endings, that we have seen before HERE

In the regular verbs, first you drop the o  in the YO form of the present indicative and then,  in verbs that end in “er”  and “ir” the endings change to “a”, and in the verbs that end in “ar” change to “e”

Let’s see some examples:
