La conjonction que

The conjunction que is used after verbs like écrire, lire and dire to introduce a clause. (A clause consists of a subject and verb, plus any related words.)

Note: The conjunction que must ALWAYS be used in French. In English, the equivalent word that is often left out.

Contrast the French and the English:
Jim écrit qu’il vient en France.
Jim writes that he is coming to France.
Il dit qu’il passe par Paris.
He says that he is passing through Paris.
Je pense que vous allez aimer Paris.
I think that you are going to like Paris.
Trouvez-vous que c’est une belle ville?
Do you think that it is a beautiful city?

We could easily have left the word ‘that’ out of the English sentences and still understood their meaning completely.
