What student of French has not felt both anxious and thrilled when finally learning the subjunctive after years stuck in the indicative with a touch of conditional?
Being able to use the subjunctive resonates with possibilities and sophistication but approached with fear often becomes a dread.
Set aside your preconceptions and rather than deploy enormous amounts of energy to avoid having to use the subjunctive, review and practice it with us!
This course offers a thorough review of the tenses (present and past) and uses of the subjunctive and the many “locutions conjonctives” (jusqu’à ce que, à condition que, de peur que, pour que, etc.) often introducing it. In addition to grammar review, we will spend ample time practicing through conversation activities.
The course is of course taught entirely in French.
Vive la France, vive le français! (Eh ! oui, le verbe est au subjonctif présent.)
