Things to remember when using the subjunctive verb form:
1) Channel Beyonce ("If I WERE a boy"), not Justin Bieber ("If I WAS your boyfriend").
2) Use the singular verb form - listens becomes listen, walks becomes walk.
3) Think about the context. The subjunctive verb form is either used in formal writing/discussions, or in expressing hopes or dreams.
The subjunctive verb form could be used like this:
If you were to listen, you might learn something.
I recommend that you study.
