I am confused with whether I should use the subjonctive in this sentence. Je suis contente que tu aies aimé l'exercice.

Je suis contente = emotion

But I know that the person loved the exercice because she already told me. So, shouldn't it be passé composé?  "Je suis contente que tu as aimé l'exercice."

merci, tutu

Debora,

It's a good question.

I think you may need to employ the subjonctif passé:

Je suis contente que tu aies aimé l'exercise.
