Present Subjunctive - Regular -ar verbs  

Grammar Present Subjunctive Regular -ar Verbs

To form the present subjunctive of a regular verb, take the first person indicative form of the verb and, with -ar verbs, change the -o ending to -e. The table below shows the endings for regular -ar verbs.

yo e
Ud./él/ella e
nosotros/as emos
vosotros/as éis
Uds./ellos/ellas en

As an example, the first person indicative form of the verb hablar (to speak) is hablo. The table below shows the conjugation of hablar:

yo hable (I speak)
hables (you speak)
Ud./él/ella hable (you/he/she speaks)
nosotros/as hablemos (we speak)
vosotros/as habléis (you guys speak)
Uds./ellos/ellas hablen (you all/they speak)

Let's look at some example sentences using the present subjunctive. The first sentences use the verb hablar (to speak) while the next sentence uses the verb firmar (to sign).

Es preciso que le hables.
It's necessary that you talk to him.

Necesitamos que usted hable con el investigador de incendios.
