Present Subjunctive

O presente do subjuntivo

Introduction Introdução
The Portuguese subjunctive mood is one of the most difficult concepts for English speakers to learn. While English has a subjunctive mood, its grammatical formulations aren't quite as different from the indicative tenses.

You use the subjunctive for various reasons:

cases of desire
to express doubt
to make impersonal statements
to talk about impeding events

Portuguese also has a imperfect and future subjunctive that describes past and future events in the same way as above.
