Understanding when to use ‘tu sois’ (être imperative)

Tu sois is not an imperative form, but a subjunctive form. The subjunctive mood is very frequent in French for verbs in subordinate clauses that express feelings such as a doubt, a wish, etc.

See here.

The subjunctive must be used after verbal phrases expressing feelings (subjunctive).

  • être: content/ heureux/ désolé/ triste/ étonné/ surpris /avoir peur/ avoir honte/ craindre/ regretter/ se réjouir

Il est dommage / Il est honteux /
Il est regrettable / Il est surprenant/ Il est triste

  • Il est dommage que tu ne puisses pas comprendre, mais l’année prochaine ça ira mieux, tu comprendras déjà beaucoup.

If the use of the subjunctive appears irrational, do not hesitate and use another form, as for instance this one.

  • Elle est triste de te savoir malade.
