  1. Hello, Mark

    One question about the subjunctive

    In the recording, you said “hay un autobús que va allí”

    here, since you do not know if there an autobus that you need, so should subjunctive be used here as “hay un autobús que vaya allí”?

    Thanks

  2. In my opinion, coming from an American English perspective, one could ask if there is a bus that comes here, or if there is a bus coming here. Coming here, based upon an expectation of procedure or usual/customary, or that comes here, based upon a schedule.

  3. OOOps, going there or that goes there, based upon the same either expectation of usual and customary or based upon a schedule. seems as if this language follows english or any other for that matter, with many ways to say the same which is very similar.

  4. Not only can I not understand the native speaker, but i can;t even understand your interpretation of him!
