El Subjuntivo The first sentence is an independent statement of fact— Cristina works a lot and pays her personal expenses. The second sentence contains a dependent clause— that Cristina works a lot and pay her personal expenses.

El Subjuntivo The actions expressed in this dependent clause are actions that are desired but not necessarily real. They are dependent upon the verb in the main clause “want”. What Cristina’s mother wants may or may not happen, the verb in the dependent clause MUST be in the subjunctive.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
