In the writing challenge, the translation from english was, I would never have imagined that which I followed with the subjunctive but the correct ans

was the conditional. Why? If croire in the negative uses the subjonctive, why not would not have imagined?

Bonjour Ann !

Actually, in this case, both Le Subjonctif and Le Conditionnel are correct in French :)

Thanks to you, I've now added the Subjonctif options to the test.

Merci et à bientôt !

Merci! Ces exams m'aide beaucoup, mais il y a beaucoup de circonstances où il me semble qu'il y aurait autre méthodes de dire les chose. Le problème c'est q'on n'est jamais sûr!

We try to be as thorough as possible, but obviously language is a living thing, and as you wrote, there are often many ways to express one idea :)

Merci de votre feedback !
