Intermediate Spanish: A trip across Latin America

6.2 Dar una opinion

En esta sección vas a conocer las estructuras gramaticales más frecuentemente utilizadas en la expresión de opiniones, que incluyen el uso de verbos en indicativo y subjuntivo.

Box 8 Use of the indicative or subjunctive complementing verbs of opinion

When an opinion is expressed, the que clause that follows the verb of opinion has verbs in the indicative:

Pienso

Creo

Opino                    + que     + ES beneficioso para Honduras

Considero

Encuentro

(I think/consider… that it is beneficial for Honduras)

But when an opinion is expressed questioning the validity of a statement (e.g. by negating the verb of opinion), the que clause that follows the verb of opinion uses the subjunctive mood:

No pienso

No creo

No considero      + que     + SEA beneficioso para Honduras

No encuentro

Dudo

No está claro

No es cierto

(I do not think/ consider that…; I doubt that…; It is not clear/true that… it is beneficial for Honduras)
