A bit off topic, but...

In the third example, "Il est important qu'il apprenne ses lecons", how come it's not "c'est important"?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Conjugate regular verbs in Le Subjonctif Présent (subjunctive mood)"

Bonjour Steven !

Here we used the impersonal "il" (same one as in "il fait beau"), which can also be replaced by "c'est":
"C'est important qu'il apprenne ses leçons."

Note that the "il" version is considered as more elegant.

Have a look at the related lesson: https://kwiziq.learnfrenchwithalexa.com/revision/grammar/il-est-important-que-subjonctif-it-is-important-that

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
