Una Lección en Los Usos de Subjuntivo con Duda
De: Mateo Cisne

Cuando hablas sobre algo de lo que tienes duda tú tienes que usar el subjuntivo.

Por ejemplo, la frase: We doubt that you are good.
Traduce a: Dudamos que seas bueno.

"Que" always follows the verb that triggers the subjunctive.
Also the first verb (the indicative verb) is expressed in a way that states a reality but the second verb has not occurred yet; at least in the mind of the speaker.

¡Tú puedes usar el subjuntivo en el pasado!


Por ejemplo la frase: We doubted that you are good.
Traduce a: Dudábamos que fueras bueno.

Remember the rule that the first verb (or indicative verb) states a state of reality while the second verb has not occurred yet; at least in the mind of the speaker.
In the past tense the first verb is always conjugated into the imperfect and the second verb is an action that at the time the speaker thought had not occurred yet, however just because it is being talked about in the past tense now does not mean that any or all of the actions in the sentence actually did occur.


Although the subjunctive is ruled by "trigger" words, above all the subjunctive mood is a user's subjunctive view on a given event.
