I just started learning about the subjunctive......I have quite a few questions about it already but I got a few things I need clarification on. I want you to buy something = quiero que compres algo. He tells them to study = les dice que estudien. I don't understand why the second sentence has to take the "les." These two sentences appear to have very similar structure in English yet very much different in Spanish. Why aren't these sentences set up one set way.......either both with or without the pronoun. ( ie. dice que estudien. Quiero que compres algo.) or ( les dice que estudien. Te quiro que compres algo.). So.....could somone explain why these require different grammatical structure Could explanations be in English as I am reletively new to the language and can't always fully grasp what is being said on some of the forums.
