  • Eu também queria saber se o pequeno-almoço estará incluído? – I am trying to get a handle on the subjunctive, why is estará not in the future subjunctive (estiver) after se,
    as there is some doubt as to whether breakfast be included or not?!

    • You don’t necessarily have to use the future subjunctive after the word “se” – it all depends on how people want to phrase things. I’m honestly struggling to find any explanation that makes sense to you as an English speaker, haha. Let’s say that in cases where you can translate “se” as “whether”, you most likely won’t need the subjunctive. That’s the case here: Eu também queria saber se o pequeno-almoço estará incluído? = I would also like to know whether breakfast will be included?
