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.
