    present subjunctive

    Id like to know if anyone out there can remember a nice song, a podcast or a video clip where one could hear the present subjunctive being used in sentences such as ...its important that she/he be calm/on time etc..or maybe something like I insisted that she stay...I suggested that she not do it...the thing is, Ive found plenty of grammar exercises on the net, but its been hard to find it as a listening exercise.Thanks ...

    Re: present subjunctive

    Hello Avalon

    I heard a present subjunctive ("that he donate") on this programme this evening. (Click on "listen to the latest programme". It's a news broadcast.)

    It was about 20 minutes into the programme.

    Good luck!

    All the best,
