I can't, but you might want to tell people what level you're aiming at. GCSE, AS, A2?

Es importante que + subj
Es necesario que + subj
Si + imperfect subj + conditional e.g. "si ganara la loteria, compraria una casa" (bold are where accents should be) or "si tuviera que vivir en un pais extranjero, viviria en Argentina"

These ones are pretty standard ways of getting subjunctives into your work.

You use it after 'quizas' aswell and when you want something so...

Quizas sea grande
Quiero que hagas los deberes
Quiere que haya una cena grande

lol great list above!
My personal favourites are:
Es importante que + subj.
Estoy contento/a que + subj.
Para que + subj.
Es una lástima que + subj.

e.g. es importante que los españoles cambien la situación
... para que la situación se mejore.
etc.

We also use the subjunctive in negative imperative sentences:

No vengas tarde esta noche -- don't come late tonight
