Hola Shirley

I think you may be mistaking the verb that is in the Imperfect subjunctive by a future tense: continuaran (imperfect subjunctive, no accent) vs continuarán (future, with accent) 

As Marsha said correctly, the use of the Conditional "le gustaría" followed by "que" will trigger the imperfect subjunctive in the subordinate clause. Here is the link for this lesson. Have a look

With clauses introduced by a verb in El Condicional + que we generally need a subordinate clause using the Imperfecto Subjuntivo as it's a hypothetical idea where the teacher is expressing a wish for something to happen in the future. You do not use the future tense in this case. See lesson - El condicional + que + El Imperfecto de Subjuntivo (wish, advice, feelings)
