Present Perfect Subjunctive in Spanish

Welcome to our lesson about the conjugation of verbs in Present Perfect Subjunctive in Spanish («Pretérito perfecto de subjuntivo»).

Conjugation

The conjugation of a verb in Present Perfect Subjunctive is constructed with two words.

  • The first word is the verb “haber” conjugated in Present Subjunctive for the right person.
  • The second word is the Past Participle of the verb you want to conjugate. This word is the same for all persons. Because the Past Participle is used in more than one verb tense, we have written a separate lesson about how to form the Past Participle. Click here to learn how to form the Past Participle. 

That means, the resulting model is:

yohaya... + Past Participle of the main verb
hayas
élhaya
nosotroshayamos
vosotroshayáis
elloshayan

Examples
