Hi, I have a question about this sentence "Ma mère me berçait dans ses bras jusqu'à ce que je m'endorme."

would it not be "...que je me suis endormé" as it is in the past? 

This question relates to:

Hi Gio,

In this sentence 'je m'endorme' is in the present subjunctive because 'jusqu'à ce que' is always followed by a subjunctive.

Hope this helps!
