subjunctive activities

This lessons were very frustrating to me. I understand how this tense works because I have been to Swahili school in Tanzania. And I realize like the notes said that this tense can be used different ways. But sometimes if you used the word 'should' you were counted wrong and other times you were counted right. Other times you had to write I have to..... in order to be counted correct. The words" have to" have a strong meaning in English. It's like ordering some one if you say you have to study. There are times you use sharti or other words that give this tense a strong meaning but most of the time it's a polite form of asking someone to do something or a suggestion. I realize how you translate this tense can depend on the sentence, but there were many places I wrote 'should' and it should have been a correct answer.

If the sentences have been rejected then it is just because the Beta phase. I have reported every exercise in these lessons using the form "should" + verb. Please do that, then the collaborators can add the users' suggestions. I think this course will be very easy for you. Do not worry and just keep practicing! =)
