Merci beaucoup! C'est tres interressant et utile pour apprendre le francais


Merci beaucoup Danielle! Tu es très sympa!


De rien mon ami! :)


Je viens d'aller "jouer" à GABFLE. Merci bien de nous avoir donné ce lien, je trouvais le site très utile et sans doute je vais y retourner bientôt!


De rien mon ami! Je suis heureux que vous l'avez trouvé utile. :)


I'm shocked I understood that. >.<


C'est super mon ami! :)


Too bad it's not proper French :/ "Je suis heureux que vous l'ayez trouvé utile"


Thanks - subjunctive because happiness is an emotion?


Subjunctive use in French is way easier to know than that : as soon as you have a relative proposition (word que), you use subjunctive. Notice how que precedes all conjugations on subjunctives in French conjugation tables? Que = subjunctive, no que = no subjunctive.


Thanks Bastiou - I wish I found it that easy :) I have noticed that the subjunctive is usually preceded by que but I also often see que not followed by the subjunctive j'affirme que je suis sûr que j'espère que - there are others. Also it is sometimes not used in the negative but is required in the affirmative and visa versa.

I read somewhere that it had to with verbs of emotion, but today I have read the following :

It is NOT used when something is perceived as factual, but IS *"used to express actions or ideas which are subjective or otherwise uncertain: will/wanting, emotion, doubt, possibility, necessity, judgment.

" Alors Je pense que c'est vrai mais Je ne pense pas que ce soit vrai et Penses-tu que ce soit vrai*

I found this site and its *subjunctivator" a fun tool - guess first then check your answer ! I think you are french so you may not need this tool as you know instinctively whether to use it or not - it just sounds right or wrong!! Thanks again :)



I'm French Canadian. You're right, it's not always subjunctive with que, but the opposite is true : you can't have subjunctive without que.

You're also right that I don't really have to think about the rule as I'll say what sounds right and be correct 99 % of the time ;-). But this situation is true for many natives about their own language. I consider myself to be quite proficient at English despite it being my second language, but I still get some frustrating errors in the English part of Italian and German exercises I'm almost certain a native wouldn't have made! The good news about that is I keep getting better in English while learning other languages ;-).


I consider you to be quite proficient at English too, and would be very hard pressed to find any errors in your writing : ) I have no Italian or German words except the usual hello, thank you etc, but I can recognise lots of words on menus (very important) in both countries because of similarities to English.

I am doing the fr-ag and the en-fr and make errors in both languages on both trees!! Many stupid typos, but lots of proper errors too!!

One last comment on que and subjunctive - there are (d'après mes recherches) a few (a very few) expressions where the subjunctive exists without que, but usually because yesteryear the que phrase was there, but has since been dropped. eg Dieu soit loué * Ainsi soit-il* - there are several more. I only mention them because I find the development of language fascinating and thought you may be interested.


You are correct. Thanks for your comment. I'm working on understanding more about the subjunctive. It is all a process of trial and error, a process we're all going through. Merci!! :)
