El Subjuntivo con Deseo. The subjunctive to express hopes and wishes!. You already know how to use the subjunctive with impersonal expressions (It’s good that). You also use the subjunctive to express a HOPE or a WISH, such as when you want someone else to do something .
El Subjuntivo con Deseo
“to do” something, but what we are really saying is that
we want that the person does something. In English, this sentence should read:
My teacher wants that I study.
Mi maestro quiere que yo estudie.
(he knows what he wants….
but he is not sure whether I will actually study.
So you can’t use “ESTUDIO” because that’s definite.
The word “estudie” opens up the possibility of doubt or uncertainty because someone else wants you to do something)
