A very effective book is called Horizontes, Gramatica y conversacion, a colelge text book that clealy illustratets the tense with examples. However, the book is written completely in spanish

I don't know of a book specifically about the subjunctive but, practice makes perfect: complete spanish grammar, goes through the subjunctive in two units and can help with all of the other tenses as well. ____________________________________________________________________ There is a book called "Practice Makes Perfect: The Spanish Subjunctive Up Close," but it won't be released until July 31, 2008. There is currently a book for sale on Amazon called "Demystifying Spanish Grammar," which explains the subjunctive in two chapters.

The subjunctive is one of the grammatical moods in English along with the indicative, the imperative and the interrogative.The subjunctive mood is used to express something of need, uncertainty or desire. It is used in languages other than English - especially Spanish.The subjunctive is used by taking the simple infinitive of any verb (minus the 'to') and using it regardless of whether the subject be first, second, third (even plural). The exception is the verb 'to be' which, in the past tense, uses 'were'. The future subjunctive uses shall/will as an auxiliary.A few examples are as follows:I hope that you will come.Whether he be good or bad.If he were to come.It is as if he were dead.Often, in some cases, the subjunctive is the same as the indicative.Some common phrases are in the subjunctive mood:God Forbid, God Bless, Long Live The King/Queen.It is dying out in English, especially spoken language, with speaker showing a preference for the indicative. It can, however, be very effective.

To say "have a good day", you could say "Que tenga un buen día". For something like "I can have a good day", you could say "Yo pueda tener un buen día". Notice these are both in the subjunctive: These are wishes or desires, not facts.

A statement not of fact, but of possibility or doubt or wish. Such as : "God save the Queen" which is short for "May God save the Queen" In the indicative it would be "God saves the Queen". In the imperative (an order) it would be "God, Save the Queen". "Good bye" derives from the subjunctive "(may) God be with you". It is important that he speak correct English. I pray that everything be all right. If I were you, I would learn the subjunctive. These above are examples of the subjunctive in English.
