Are you tired of subjunctive lessons (classes, books, videos) that make sense while they’re occurring, but don’t hold up in real life?
I was too!
I was confused and frustrated with the subjunctive for YEARS (almost twenty).
I studied the subjunctive at five different Spanish immersion schools…
I read pretty much every subjunctive book on the market…
And honestly, the more I was exposed to the subjunctive, the MORE CONFUSED I became.
Can you blame me?
ENDLESS LISTS of words and phrases that supposedly “trigger” the subjunctive... but not always!
So many RULES and ACRONYMS… with just as many EXCEPTIONS.
To make matters worse, all those teachers, videos, websites and books often CONTRADICTED each other.
And adding insult to injury--after all that, it STILL seemed like half the subjunctive situations I encountered in the real world weren’t even mentioned in any of the websites, videos and books.
It was maddening!
So... if YOU’RE confused and frustrated with the subjunctive…
You’re not alone...
It’s not your fault...
And I've got some GOOD NEWS for you...
The “4 Buckets System” is a reliable system for deciding when to use the subjunctive (and when not to)... that actually holds up in real life.
Every potential subjunctive situation fits into one of four "buckets".
One of the buckets is "Expressions & Exceptions" (which just have to be memorized).
But then, in each of the remaining three buckets, there's a UNIQUE TEST we can apply to decide whether to use the subjunctive or not.
In short, the “4 Buckets System” has two steps:
Figure out which bucket a situation fits into (using an easy TRICK I give you).
Apply the appropriate TEST to decide whether to use the subjunctive or not.
And, I’m telling you… this actually holds up in REAL LIFE.
As a teacher and businessman, my only goal is:
What I teach you matches what you see in real life.
Doesn’t matter to me.
REALITY is all that matters to me.
And, in reality, after seeking out subjunctive examples in countless newspapers, books, TV shows and movies, I can confidently tell you:
Do you dream of dazzling your friends or family members with your expert use of the subjunctive?
Do you fantasize about not ever having to worry about the subjunctive again?
Are you sick of wasting time on subjunctive lessons that don't hold up in real life?
Do you yearn to dump all the ad hoc "crap" in exchange for a RELIABLE, SIMPLE system that actually works?
Do you want to skip the years of frustration that most Spanish learners (including me) have to spend to get the subjunctive straight?
Then, today's your lucky day!
WARNING! This workshop isn’t for everybody.
If you’re looking for one of those scammy magic bullet, “Become Fluent in 3 Months” type things, this isn't for you.
Even though the “4 Buckets System” is SIMPLE, it’s not EASY (not at first, at least).
The subjunctive is complicated. It takes time to learn the “4 Buckets System”. Then, lots of exposure and practice to ingrain it into your subconscious (where it needs to be).
If you're looking for MAGIC without putting any effort in, again, this isn't for you.
But... if you want a step-by-step strategy that'll transform your Spanish (and you're willing to work for it) -- the "Subjunctive Workshop" will change the course of your Spanish journey forever!
This is NOT just another regurgitated WEIRDO lesson.
Most Spanish-teaching resources tell us about WEIRDO, then call it a day. They leave it at that!
WEIRDO is an acronym designed to help us decide when to use the subjunctive.
I never liked WEIRDO.
It didn’t cover nearly as many situations as the teachers and books implied it would--and it even seemed downright WRONG sometimes.
WEIRDO left me unprepared, confused and frustrated.
And, now I know why.
Turns out, WEIRDO was only designed originally to help us decide when to use the subjunctive in ONE of the FOUR buckets.
But, most Spanish-teaching resources INCORRECTLY tell us (or imply) that it works for the subjunctive IN GENERAL.
That's one reason WEIRDO doesn’t cover nearly every situation. It's not designed to!
And that's one reason why WEIRDO often leads us to the wrong choice. When we use it in the wrong situations, it gives us the wrong answer!
Not to mention the amount of contradictions and exceptions is mind boggling.
All that to say... the “Subjunctive Workshop” is NOT just another regurgitated WEIRDO lesson (though we will talk about WEIRDO).
Also, the goal of the “Subjunctive Workshop” is to help you decide WHEN to use the subjunctive, NOT to help you memorize all the conjugation patterns (which you can do on your own time).
We WON'T be going over all the subjunctive conjugation patterns in great detail.
If you're already familiar with them, great, but that's not required. You'll be able to follow along even if you don't know the subjunctive conjugation patterns yet.
All classes are delivered LIVE via ZOOM.

You'll have lifetime access to every minute of the program. So, if you can't make it live or have to leave early, you can breathe easy knowing I've got you covered.
YES! I personally lead every class!
However, this is not a personal, 1-on-1 program, which means it doesn't include direct access to me.
Kinda. If you're not familiar with all the normal conjugation patterns (present, preterite, imperfect, future, conditional, perfects, progressives) -- you won't be able to fully take advantage of this workshop.
You don’t have to know them perfectly. You don't have to know all the irregulars. But, it's better if you're at least familiar with the normal conjugation patterns (indicative).
