    Can anyone recommend any set subjunctive phrases, I have an as speaking exam in a few days. I've been told to use fillers such as 'pues' and entonces, is this a bad idea

    Pues and entonces work. Por eso (therefore) can work as well as a 'filler'. Don't overuse them though as it seems like the point is to speak in subjunctive!

    Other Fillers:
    Sin embargo - however
    Bueno - Ok then (Don't overuse this)
    Es decir (that is to say)
    Luego - later
    Por fin - lastly/finally
    Es decir - that is to say

    Don't use too many fillers, it can seem like you're hesitating too much, use a few but not loads.

    Subjunctives:
    -Most things with que e.g. Me entristece que haya tanto peligro en el mundo
    -Si hubiera __________ tendría (If + subjunctive + conditional)

    Which topics are you doing?/ what is your chosen topic?
