(Note that salir is more commonly used in Spanish for to leave. Although it is a regular verb, partir in Catalan has spelling changes in the stem, so I used sentir - to feel instead.)

The periphrastic past in Catalan is an alternative to the preterite. It is formed by using anar as an auxiliary verb followed by the infinitive.

vaig sentir
vas sentir
va sentir
vam sentir
vau sentir
van sentir

There is an alternative form of the imperfect subjunctive in Spanish, which is more similar to Portuguese. Simply replace -ra- with -se- for all conjugations:

partiera / partiese
partieras / partieses
partiera / partiese
partiéramos / partiésemos
partierais / partieseis
partieran / partiesen

The future subjunctive is only used in formal or literary Spanish, but it is easy to conjugate since it is nearly identical to the imperfect subjunctive forms. The future subjunctive in Portuguese is very common and the same endings are used for the personal infinitive. For regular verbs, the personal infinitive in Portuguese is identical to the future subjunctive.

Spanish Portuguese
partiere partir
partieres partires
partiere partir
partiéremos partirmos
partiereis partirdes
partieren partirem

There is an alternative form of the past perfect in Portugueuse which only uses one word rather than an auxiliary verb + past participle. These conjugations are quite similar to the imperfect subjunctive conjugations using -ra- in Spanish. However, this simple form is only used in formal or literary Portuguese. (Note that the imperfect subjunctive in Spanish using -ra- can also be used in formal or literary language as an alternative to the compound past perfect.)
