Why is the following sentence in the imperfect subjunctive? Could it not use the present?
Me gustaría que vieran el deporte como una herramienta para empoderarse.
Dictation exercise B1
There is a general sequence of tenses in these cases, so if you have the conditional in the first clause (me gustaría que...) the subordinate clause most of the time uses the imperfect subjunctive. The use of the present subjunctive instead would have an extra nuance. Here is a kwiziq lesson that talks about that precisely. Have a look here.
I hope it helps.
¡Muchas gracias Inma!
