Indicative Present

In Spanish, the indicative present is used to talk about what happens at the present moment. It’s the tense we use when we want to speak about actions and states occurring right now. In the indicative present tense, sentir helps us express how we feel in the moment. For example, “Me siento feliz” (I feel happy) or “Él siente mucho amor por su madre” (He feels a lot of love for his mother). This tense captures the character of our emotions.

How to Conjugate Sentir in Perfect Tense

The perfect tense helps us talk about completed actions. They’re easy to recognize because they use both the auxiliary verb haber and sentido, which is the past participle form of sentir.

The perfect tense is a compound tense that is used to express actions or events that have a connection to the past, present or future. This mood includes present perfect, future perfect, past perfect (pluperfect), conditional perfect, and preterite perfect. 

Present Perfect

The present perfect is often used to express actions that have taken place at an unspecified time in the past, actions that have relevance to the present, or actions that have been completed recently. When applied to sentir, it allows us to express emotions and sensations that have happened recently, and are still relevant. The present perfect is especially useful when we talk about how we have felt before now. For example, “He sentido mucha alegría hoy.” (“I have felt a lot of joy today”).

Let’s look at the conjugations of sentir in the present perfect tense in the chart below:

Future Perfect

The future perfect tense helps us to look into the upcoming events and describe experiences that will be felt before a certain point in time. The future perfect tense, made by the combination of haber in the future tense with sentido (the past participle of sentir), helps us talk about feelings in the future. It allows us to say that, by a certain time in the future, a feeling will have been experienced. For example, “Para el momento de la graduación, habré sentido una gran satisfacción” (“By the time of graduation, I will have felt a great sense of accomplishment”).

The present perfect subjunctive is used in complex sentences to express actions that have occurred recently or in the past and are relevant to the present.
