The Spanish subjunctive is a mood, rather than a tense. It’s typically taught to learners after they’ve covered tenses, so is often viewed as being quite advanced. Indeed, it can be tough for non Spanish (or non Romance language) speakers to get their heads around it, as the concept of the subjunctive is quite alien. There are many ways to learn the subjunctive (you can check out our guide to the Spanish subjunctive), but one of the best ways to start using it is to learn some common subjunctive Spanish phrases.
