The present perfect subjunctive is formed using the formula below:
present subjunctive conjugation of haber + the past participle = present perfect subjunctive
Below is the present subjunctive conjugation of the helping verb haber with the past participle of hablar
There are two possible English translations for the present perfect subjunctive:
haya hablado - I spoke (or) I have spoken
hayas hablado - you spoke (or) you have spoken
hayamos hablado - we spoke (or) we have spoken
The present perfect subjunctive is used in the same types of clauses as the present subjunctive, and normally is used: to indicate the action as completed with governing verbs in the present or future tense or command forms. Let's look at some example sentences:
Lamento que el producto no haya cumplido con sus estándares.
I apologize that the product was not up to your standards.
Lamentamos que haya tenido problemas con el producto.
We are sorry you had a problem with the product.
Estás contento de que haya llegado.
