Writing as someone whose education didn’t include instruction in all the tenses - or, more truthfully, I just wasn’t paying attention - I’d like to know when to use subjunctive present instead of plain ordinary present. I suppose I could just Google it but I’d rather find it in Kwiziq. This is more an observation than a question. Thanks for your time.
The subjunctive mood tends to be triggered when certain emotions or contradictions or general statements are being expressed.
Typically emotive intentions for example Wish, Emotion, Doubt, Desire, interrogative, negation (penser, croire), general statements.
Eg. Do not disturb / keep off the grass / please be patient.
See the links for further information.
Jim's explantion is great! See the link here too: French Subjunctive Mood
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
