Grammar Point: subjunctive verb forms

After certain verbs and expressions, the subjunctive verb form is used, e.g.: Je veux que tu dises la verdad (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. 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).
