Question about English (UK)

In Spanish we've got a tense called Present Subjunctive.
How can I use this tense in English?
I only can say: Do you want me to go? (quieres que vaya)
But if I try to say other sentence with the tense I just use "that" for example: It's better that you eat (Es mejor que comas)
and I really don't know if it's right.
So... Might you be so kind of answering my doubt?
Thank you 😊
