Experience III, Lesson 17: The Subjunctive of Esse

Learning how to form the Subjunctive of the Verb 'to be'

Recall the 4 principal parts of the verb "to be": sum, esse, fui, futurus,a,um.
Then it should be fairly easy to form the subjunctive as learned in last lesson.

The subjunctive of "to be"

  1. T.1s = sim...
  2. T.2s = essem...
  3. T.3s = fuerim...
  4. T.4s = fuissem...
Then just form the other persons and numbers as with all our Verb Endings, Lesson I-2.

Now go on to Lesson 18 and then to Homework 15-16
