Verbs with Subjonctif

Bonjour,

I was doing this sentence and since there are two verbs croire and aller I know that you look at the second verb which is aller to determine whether to use peux or puisse and aller is Subjonctif so you use the puisse am I correct?

Maman, papa , croyez- vous que je_____ aller seule au concert samedi sour.

I would recommend you go by the kwiziq lessons. They build upon each other and introduce grammatical concepts in a well thought out way. The subjunctive is not something I would tackle at the A0 level just yet. Unless, of course, your displayed level doesn't reflect your actual skills.

Hi Nicole, where did you get this sentence from? Your displayed level of A0 seems at odds with the grammatical concepts you ask about and the comments you make.

Chris,

It is in a work book I got at a bookstore.

I would concentrate on following along with the kwiziq lessons. Otherwise you'll wind up tackling grammatical concepts out of order. It only makes sense to be on kwiziq if you more or less follow along with their lessons. At your displayed level of A0, worrying about the subjunctive and its use is too early anyway. There need to be other concepts firmly in place before that.
