How to Conjugate Oír in Subjunctive Tense

We don’t use the subjunctive tense in English, because there are specific words and phrases we can use to communicate doubt or hope. In Spanish, however, we use subjunctive moods to convey subjective ideas like feelings or opinions.

We’ll study the following subjunctive tenses: present subjunctive, future subjunctive, and imperfect subjunctive.

Present Subjunctive

For example, you can say “Cuando llegue a la cima de la montaña, oyere los sonidos de la ciudad” which means “When I get to the top of the mountain, I will hear the sounds of the city.” Keep in mind that this tense is rarely used and often replaced by the present subjunctive.

How to Conjugate Oír in the Imperative Tense

The imperative mood serves to give commands, orders, or advice. Notice that there are different conjugations for the negative imperative form of oír and you add the word “no” instead of “don’t.” The use of oír in the imperative tense is limited because we use its conjugations to call out or command people to listen to things. For this reason, you will see this form of oír applied in similar expressions like “¡Oye!” which literally means, “Hear!” but is replaced by the word “listen” in English translations since they are commanding you to pay attention to what you hear.
