Le mode du subjonctif

Oh là là ! That subjective subjunctive! The subjunctive mode is used a lot in French, unlike in English. It’s pretty straight forward to conjugate, a bit iffier to use.

In a nutshell, before you start the course: use the subjunctive mode any time you’re not stating a fact, but are describing how you feel about it.

  • Tu ne peux pas partir : le bateau est échoué.
    • stating a fact => using the indicative mode
  • Je ne pense pas que tu puisses partir : le bateau est échoué.
    • describing my take on the topic (I don’t think that…) => using the subjunctive mode

This course runs through all aspects of the subjunctive mode in details, with practice and answers so you can hone your subjunctive.
