The Present Subjunctive -Verbs of the Second Group

The subjunctive tense is common in the French language. However, it can be challenging for non-native French speakers to determine in which situations to use it and with which phrases and verbs.

In this chapter, we will study the form of the present subjunctive as well as its use. First we will start with the form of the verbs then we’ll explore the use of this tense.

The subjunctive tense is ALWAYS preceded with “que”. So in all the conjugations of the verbs throughout this chapter, we will have “que” before the verb in the subjunctive.

In this part, we will study the verbs of the second group in the present subjunctive. Just like the verbs of the first group, the verbs of the second group are called regular verbs because they all follow the same rule of conjugation. They all end in “ir”; however, there are many verbs that end in “ir”, but they don’t belong to the second group because their present participle doesn’t end in “issant”.
