Thank you. I’ve realized how many times I made mistakes using these verbs.


thank you mr. Alex… this topic so easy to learn with you. sometime i made mistake when I use subjunctive grammar


sometimes strange things happened. it was a new grammar topic for me and after the lesson I’ve passed all the quiz correct!

Profile photo of protanya protanya

    yes, the strange thing is – after the lesson ” I had pass the quiz”.

    Profile photo of roshank roshank

      “I passed the quiz” “after” indicates “after what” :D

      Profile photo of nextstep.n nextstep.n

      I had passed the quiz before I watched the lesson. I think that in this case it would be correct (using of the past perfect).

      Profile photo of nextstep.n nextstep.n

Great! Thanks teacher for this lesson. It’s very interesting :). I haven’t never known this before.


This topic was really difficult for me when I was taking Grammar course but nowww I understood it better, my score was 10 out of 10. Thanks a lot ALEX.


I got 9/10 hahahhaha I just didn’t read read the sentence carefully, but at least it’s a good score

thank you Sir Alex

Profile photo of markbel23 markbel23

It’s very confusing but I need to remember it is use for advice…

Sir Alex could I ask you a question? I’m sometimes confused of using “with and to” for example

I’m talking to you
or I’m talking with you…what’s the difference?

Profile photo of markbel23 markbel23

    Talking to you means you are talking to the person, directly to that particular person / kinakausap mo ang tao.
    Talking with you means for example you are in a 3 (2 boys & 2 girls) so you were talking to the girl with your friend, you were with him, you both talk to her which means you talk with him.
    Or maybe you are talking about the person not with you temporarily, when you are talking to a different person addressing her…
    I am not sure but that’s what I think


Thank you, Alex.

my score 9 of 10. any suggestions?


    you can use SHOULD in the second part of the sentense and everything gets clear. For instance: Alex recomended that Tom SHOULD listen to Sergei. Now leave out SHOULD and life is perfect again..you cannot use final -S with SHOULD neither you can use TO… Alex AM I RIGHT?


very cool..Thanks Alex!
Tke care!

Shing Mang Tun

it’s important (that) he come on time

why can’t we use comes instead of come?

Modern Indian life

India is a culturally and ethnically diverse nation. In view of rising crime, it causes for several departments of administration of both central and state government have been failed to be vigilant. Many of elected leaders and administrations have been retorting since independence. During elections, voters have been hearing the rumble of wrong promises across the nation.The iniquities of Indian politicians and authorities are a bolt on humanity and it began to poverty and scurried death. The corrupted politicians must be battered in the court of law and according to world lore, the Indian politicians the highest depositors in the Swiss has healing properties.A confrontation between looting political parties and the parties led to a tense situation in all fields of employment and lives of people. Country side did not heed the advice of the others because of their obstinacy. People never dare to bias towards facilitation and development of infrastructure.
India is not only the oldest civilized nation but also mother of several launchers like “Yoga, Kamasutra, gurukula education”. The infrastructure of the rural life such as handy crafts, joint families influenced due to poor administration and unworthy policies. Authorities and elected leaders are making people burst into hysterical tears at the hopeless theories. Youngsters are bickering when they play crucial play in the society due to corruption and crime. How nation could see the pinnacle of the success above their expectations ? Let hope to see the path of climbing Himalayas.

Is subjunctive only use to give urgency and importance in a sentence? Just to give more clarifications on this matter. I understand but I just want to know how, is it also only using “that” for subjunctive to show urgency? Look forward to hearing from you Sir Alex. Thanks.


it is important everybody see this. it was clearly explained by Alex.

Hey there Alex, thanks for the lesson, I’ve got a question though. Isn’t the Subjunctive also used in conditions? I thought the second condition “If I went to London, I would see the Thames” had something to do with the Subjunctive. Thank your for the answer!


Thanks alot

Thanks Alex, it’s really helpful ^^


Hi teacher,

Can subjunctive also express a strong wish? As, for example, in “God save the King/Queen” or “God bless you”. Without the s/es of the singular third person.

On the other hand, what about the structure verb + object + infinitive? For example, instead of saying, like in the quiz, “The doctor recommended that I rest at home…” why not “The doctor recommend me to rest at home…”. And the same for, at least, the nine first questions of the quiz. Last example: “She requested that we wait patiently” / “She requested us to wait patiently”. Are these two ways possible?
I am looking forward to reading your answer. Thanks in advance!

    I have the same question because, my teacher told me that Spanish speakers often make this mistake when they try to translate directly word for word: I want that the bank lends me…. and the correct is: I want the bank to lend me a thousand pounds

Hey Alex. Does the word URGE really work with subjunctive? The other day I was doing a quiz when I came across a question with URGE which I got wrong. I thought I had to use the subjunctive with it but it turned out that the right answer was made by means of the infinitive plus the objective case of a pronoun. I don’t remember the sentence but it looked like this – I URGED HIM TO TELL ME THE TRUTH. Is it the same with I urged he tell me the truth? Or the last one has a stronger meaning like I forced him to tell me the truth?? %) It seems to me that I’ll never get a hang of it (

Thank you Alex for this interesting and useful lesson as always. I would qualify subjonctive as an “educated” tense since it is mainly used by people endowed with a certain education. Personally, I am using it in French; it is natural in a way as I have been taught to use it since my childhood. In English, I must say I am hesitant because as a non-native English speaker, I always fear being wrong and appearing to speak with a phony “posh accent”.
