Conjugate aller in Le Subjonctif Présent (subjunctive mood)

que tu ailles you go
qu'il/elle/on aille he/she/we go
que nous allions we go
que vous alliez you go

Il faut que vs use of devour + infinitive

Would you pls explain the differences and nuances of the use of il faut que +subjunctive and devour + the infinitive.  When is it better to use one vs the other?

There have been discussions about this before. Il faut is more impersonal than devoir; that's the main difference. Devoir conveys a bit more urgency, maybe.

Subjunctive when?

"Il (verbe1) que (pronom) (verbe2)" Is verbe2 to be in the subjunctive mood for every verbe1 or only for some particular verbs?

Only for some-the list of verbs and conjunctions requiring the subjunctive in 'verb2' is long-you'll find everything in Laura's lesson if you search 'subjunctive'- Hope that helps!
