  • Object pronouns and no are always placed directly before the form of haber, e.g.:

  • The present perfect form of hay is always ha habido ( there has/have been) , e.g.:

  • Remember that acabar + de + infinitive (not the present perfect tense) is used to state that something has just occurred, e.g.:

Ha habido un accidente.

(There’s been an accident.)

Acabo de mandar la carta.

I’ve just mailed the letter.

¿Qué es el presente perfecto de subjuntivo?




The present perfect subjunctive (el perfecto subjuntivo) is formed with the present subjunctive of haberplus the past participle. It is used to express I have spoken(written, and so on) when the subjunctive is required.

Es posibleque (él) lo hayahecho.

It’s possible (that) he may have done he did it.

Me alegro de que (tú) hayasvenido.

I’m glad (that) you have come (you came).

Es buenoque lo hayanconstruido.

It’s good (that) they built (have built) it.

Note in the model sentence at the right that the English equivalent of the present perfect subjunctive can be expressed as a simple or compound tense: did/have done; came/have come; built/have built.

The perfect subjunctive differs from the present subjunctive in that it conveys the meaning of an action which would, or might have taken place, i.e. a finished action

Compare a) with b):

a) Esperoquelleguen a tiempoparacoger el avión (I hope they arrive on time to catch the plane)

b) Esperoquehayanllegado a tiempoparacoger el avión(I hope they arrived on time so that they could catch the place)

¡Vamos a practicar con el pretérito perfecto!
