I was confused with the subjunctive following the phrase "nous esperons que ce soit.." as I thought it didn't take it in the affirmative, only in the negative?
Dictation exercise C1
In modern French, 'espérer' is followed by L'Indicatif in most cases. After a long discussion, the language team agreed that this sentence should be changed to L'Indicatif Présent as Le Subjonctif would imply that the 'collaboration / future of the person in the company' was very much in doubt. And then, why hire the person in the first place ? ;-)
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
I haven't tried to do this particular exercise but there are situations where the subjunctive is appropriate. See here for further information
Hope you will find this useful.
