What is the indicative and the subjunctive? I was studying Spanish, and I came across the two types of conjugations in verbs: the indicative and the subjunctive. I get what the indicative is, since that's what we use every day. But I don´t understand the subjunctive. What is it, How do you tell, How is it used, And how do you use it? Thanks!

Hey David. The subjuntive is a ''mood''. It helps in cases where there is uncertainty, to make polite requests, and to express hope, wishes, or doubts, among other uses. Some examples would be: Espero que llueva hoy. No creo que vaya a la fiesta. Quiero que me traigas el libro, por favor El subjuntivo se puede usar en el pasado, presente y muy raramente en el futuro. :)
