“J’aimerais que nous travaillions sur la prononciation,”

“J’aimerais que nous travaillions sur la prononciation,”

Are the tenses correct in “J’aimerais que nous travaillions sur la prononciation,”? The imparfait seems wrong to me. Shouldn’t it be present conditional (travaillerions) or future (travaillerons)?

Hi Brian,

"Aimer que" requires the subjunctive so what we have here is aimer in the conditional followed by travailler in the subjunctive (nous travaillions) which by chance, is identical to the imperfect.

Hope this helps.

Bonjour Brian,

Jim is right! 'Travailler' is conjugated in Le Subjonctif.

Here is the link on aimer/détester que + Subjonctif.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
