    Hola a todos,

    Quiero saber si uso el subjuntivo correctamente o no?

    Ya toda esta bien con el vuelo, entonces no es necesario que me ayudes, pero gracias. Estoy contenta de saber finalmente la fecha, y muy feliz de regresar. Espero que estes bien. Nos vemos.

    Gracias

    I think the rest of the sentence is correct. But let's wait for the opinion of the natives.

    Hi,
    Just some very little additional corrections (besides Xavierka's):

    Ya todo está bien con el vuelo, entonces no es necesario que me ayudes, pero gracias. Estoy contenta de saber finalmente la fecha_, y muy feliz de regresar. Espero que estés bien. ¡Nos vemos!

    (That spare red comma is supposed to look like it's crossed out? :D)
    Bye ;)

    Hello,

    I think the sentence will be much, much, much better if you say "No tienes que ayudarme", for a simple construction like that is not only shorter, but much more natural. Who would say in English, "It's not necessary that you help me?" Well, I suppose that you should practice the subjunctive as much as you can, but in the language using an impersonal construction instead of a simpler one in that case just makes no sense, am I right? :)

    That's true..... But you're right about needing to practice the subjunctive as well, I always have trouble with it!

    Thanks very much Tazzler :)
