Present Perfect Subjunctive Regular Verbs  

Spanish Grammar Subjunctive Mood Present Perfect Subjunctive - Regular Verbs

The present perfect subjunctive is formed using the formula below:

present subjunctive conjugation of haber + the past participle = present perfect subjunctive

The table below shows the present subjunctive conjugation of the helping verb haber together with the past participle of hablar (to speak) - hablado.

yo haya hablado
hayas hablado
Ud./él/ella haya hablado
nosotros (as) hayamos hablado
vosotros (as) hayáis hablado
Uds./ellos/ ellas hayan hablado

Note that there are two possible English translations for each example below.

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 with other regular verbs:
