Comprehensive Lesson on the French Subjunctive

The subjunctive: What is it? How do you form it? How do you use it?

Comprehensive lesson on the French Subjunctive

  • What is the subjunctive?
  • How do you form the subjunctive?
  • What are the irregular forms?
  • When do you use the subjunctive?
  • How to know when to use the subjunctive versus the indicative

This is a comprehensive French resource to teach you about the subjunctive, how to form it, and to help you decide whether to use the subjunctive or the indicative according to the expression being used in a sentence. For example, you will learn that Il faut que is always followed by the subjunctive, but what about Il est possible que, Je ne crois pas que, Je déclare que, J'affirme que, Il est probable que, etc.

The exercises in this lesson focus on using 40 different expressions followed by QUE + SUBJUNCTIVE or INDICATIVE. If you are just beginning to learn how to form the subjunctive you may want to also sign up for my free online quiz to practice that skill.

This French resource includes:

  1. A 40 minute comprehensive video tutorial on how to form the subjunctive and how to use it
  2. A complete support guide to follow along with the video
  3. Two exercises at the end of the video lesson
  4. Five sudoku puzzles to practice the present subjunctive
  5. Ten crossword puzzles to practice the present subjunctive
  6. Subjunctive or indicative expressions list (40 expressions included)
  7. 40 question quiz in which you must choose between the subjunctive and the indicative
  8. Fill in the blank test in the form of a story in which you must again choose between the subjunctive and the indicative.

This lesson along with all other resources in the LLL Academy is included in my BUNDLED FRENCH LESSONS.

Bonjour! I'm Jennifer, and I’m an American French teacher living in the South of France. My native language is English, and I speak French fluently. I love to travel, and have led guided tours in 15 countries in Western Europe with my former students from the United States. I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and French, then taught French for a year and moved to France for a year before pursuing and earning a Master of Arts degree in French. I taught French at Saint Louis University High School, a Jesuit college preparatory school for young men, for 14 years. In the summer of 2013 I relocated to France with my family, and spent the summer working as Dean of l’Académie de France in Montpellier, a French immersion program for teenagers from around the world. A while before relocating to France, I began teaching French online via Skype. I am now teaching French online full time and I also give immersion classes and guided city visits in both languages in Béziers, France.

It’s my job to guide you and help you along on your journey to learn French. Learning should be fun, and I will make sure that enjoy yourself as you improve your listening, writing, reading, and most importantly your speaking skills. Over the years I have developed many creative strategies to guarantee your progress. All students have different learning styles, different strengths and weaknesses, and different levels. One of my first jobs as your teacher is to provide you with an approach that will suit your learning style so that you will get the most out of your classes as possible.
