However, in the past, this structure was used to express ideas such as desirability and possibility. In modern English, we are more likely to express the same ideas using modal auxiliary verbs like would, should or must. That said, subjunctive is still used in certain situations.   Learning to conjugate verbs in subjunctive turns out to be the easy part of the puzzle. What is more important is recognizing when to use indicative mood and when to use subjunctive mood.
