Le subjonctif – Sample Lesson

Le subjonctif is one of the trickiest aspects of the French language for learners and natives.

Although often referred to as un temps (a tense), such as le présent, le passé composé, etc, gramatically speaking it is actually un mode (a mode) because of what it conveys, rather than when it conveys.

In this module over the next few lessons we’re going to tackle it step by step so that each aspect is given the attention it requires for you to be able to use it and not get bogged down with details that might be unnecessary.

Note: You should be very comfortable conjugating in the indicative present (normal present) before getting to grips with the subjunctive.
