Transcript of THIRD CONDITIONAL

Structure
If + had(n't), would(n't) have + past participle

If we
had invented
the wheel earlier, life
would have been
easier.
If we
hadn't discovered
fire, humankind's progress
would have been
slower.
Look at the order and punctuation
You can start sentences with the if or would clause.

I
wouldn't have been
late if I
hadn't forgotten
to set up the alarm clock.
If I
hadn't forgotten
to set up the alarm clock, I
wouldn't have been
late.

Notice
that when the sentence starts with
if
, we use a
comma
to separate the two clauses.
They are hypothetical or imaginary situations in the past
If we
had arrived
earlier, we
wouldn't have missed
the plane.

However, we arrived late so we missed the plane. I can't go back and change the past so it's only a hypothesis.
Notice the idea of speculation
FACTS
: Some years ago, I broke my ankle bone when I went to a barbeque with some friends. I had an operation so I couldn't go on a cruise. That cruise was my honeymoon. Therefore, I didn't have a honeymoon
SPECULATION
: Some years ago I
wouldn't have broken
my ankle bone if I
hadn't gone
to a barbeque with some friends. If I
hadn't broken
my ankle bone, I
wouldn't have have
had an operation. I
would have gone
on a cruise if I
hadn't had
that operation. If I
had gone
on that cruise, I
would have had
a honeymoon.
NOW IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO MAKE SENTENCES.
The following pictures are situations in the past. Think of a third conditional to change the result. Use your imagination!!
GOAL!
THIRD CONDITIONAL
Have a nice trip!
