1 Subjunctive with Ojalá and Verbs of Hope Desear, esperar and querer
2 In EnglishYou express what you want someone to do with an infinitive, you express what you hope someone does with the present tense, and you express what you wish someone would do with the conditional. In Spanish, you can express all three with the subjunctive.
3 For example Infinitive: I want John to arrive Quiero que John llegue Present: I hope John arrivesEspero que John llegueConditional: I wish John would arriveDeseo que John llegue
4 Subjunctive with Verbs of Hope You already know how to form the present subjunctive. After verbs of hope, use the subjunctive if there is a change of subject.Desear-to WishEsperar-to hopeQuerer(e-ie)-to want
5 Here’s howUse the indicative for the verb expressing a hope or wish and the subjunctive for the verb with the new subject. (*indicative means the regular present tense that you have been using all along)Verb of hope+que+different subject+subjunctive
6 For example The teacher hopes that the students do the homework. La profesora espera que los estudiantes hagan la tarea.Verb of hope in the indicative (espera)+ que+New subject-the students+Verb in subjunctive (hagan)
7 Another exampleThe principal wishes that the students would not use their phones.El director desea que los estudiantes no usen sus teléfonos.Verb of hope (desea)+ que+new subject (estudiantes) + subjunctive(usen)
8 One more exampleThe mother wants her child to behave well. La madre quiere que su hijo se comporte bien. Verb of hope (quiere)+new subject (hijo) + subjunctive (se comporte)

10 OjaláOjalá expresses hope. It has only one form and cannot be conjugated. Ojalá can be used with or without que. Either way, it is used with the subjunctive.Ojalá que no llueva mañana.I hope it does not rain tomorrowOjalá que tengamos tiempo.I hope that we have time
11 No change of subjectUse the infinitive and omit que if there is no change of subjectI hope that I get good grades.Espero sacar buenas notasThe subject is hoping something for him/her self. No subjunctive
