I'm trying to say the following sentence in french:
I was hoping you could tell me (something).
In Spanish, one would conjugate "to hope" (espérer) in the indicative imperfect, and "to can" (pouvoir) in the imperfect subjunctive, in the following manner:
Esperaba que me pudiera(s) decir...
However I don't know if the same thing is done in French. I was hoping someone could tell me whether this is the case. :P Thanks in advance!
