Grammar Point: subjunctive verb forms

After certain verbs and expressions, the subjunctive verb form is used, e.g.: Je veux que tu dises la vérité (cf.: the present indicative of dire, tu dis).
To master the subjunctive, you must learn when to use it, i.e.: the expressions and verbs that trigger the subjunctive form of the following verb (vouloir que, il faut que). You must also learn the particular subjunctive forms of many common irregular verbs e.g.: faire, savoir, être (que je fasse, que je sache, que je sois). You can find out more about the subjunctive here.
