When to Use the Subjunctive With the French Word 'Coire'

When to Use the Subjunctive With the French Word 'Coire'

The French word croire is an irregular verb that means "to believe," and it may require the subjunctive, depending on whether it is used affirmatively, negatively or interrogatively. An affirmative sentence calls for the indicative, rather than the subjunctive. You'll use the subjunctive when ‚Äčcroire is used to express doubt or uncertainty.

Examples

Je crois qu'il a raison.
I think he's right.

Je ne crois pas qu'il ait raison.
I don't think he's right.

Crois-tu qu'il ait raison ?
Do you think he's right?
