I am still unsure why the subjective mood is used. Cant you just say Je dois..... instead of Il faut que....? It seems so much harder to cinstr

Hi Amanda,

Yes,  you can use 'devoir' to avoid 'il faut que'

There are some occasions when you can avoid the subjunctive and as your grasp of the language improves you will grab these opportunities...

It seems so much harder to me to construct sentenances this way.

Thanks
