Level B1 - 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.
