The Subjunctive: Will You Resist? Posted by Adir on Feb 9, 2009 in Spanish Culture, Spanish Grammar
I have always used songs in my lessons because I think they’re a fun way to learn. When I teach the subjunctive I always use a song by a Spanish duo, el Dúo Dinámico. They come from a very poor Spanish family (Basque and Aragonese) and are famous all over Spain and South America. One of their songs appears in Pedro Almodóvar’s movie ¡Átame! (Tie me up! Tie me down!). In “Resistiré” there are a lot of verbs used in the subjunctive and let’s try something here: you watch the video and supply the correct form used in the song. As a clue, the verbs are used in time expressions starting with “cuando”. Shall we go for it? Here are the verbs.
perder – dormir -cerrar -dejar -sentir-costar -rebelar -poner -soplar -romper -ser -apuñalar -reconocer – amenazar -salir -pasar
