Transcript of Wishes and conditionals.

Wishes and conditionals. Expressing wishes. Making a wish can be anything from one's private thought to imposing one's will on others. What is a wish??? There are differet kind of wishes
let's start with the fist one !!! 1- A wish that can come true… we use wish to + verb, example:
We wish to go with you.
I wish you would stop talking.
2- A present wish about
the past… we use Use wish + could/would + have + participle, example:
 I wish I could have gone.
 I wish you would have remembered. 3- An imaginary wish…
we use Use wish + past tense verb form, example:
 I wish I were home in my country
 I wish I could go with you. 4- A past wish about the past…
we use Uses wished + could/would + have + participle, example:
 I wish I could have gone.
 I wished I had been old enough to drive.
Conditionals. We have five types of conditionals; let’s study each one of them. 1- TYPE O It is used to express a general truth or a scientific fact, we can use when instead of if. Example,
 If/when you mix white and black paint, you get gray. 2- TYPE 1 It is used to express a real o very probable situation in the present or future. Example,
 If I finish this project by the end of the month, I will/might go to visit my girlfriend. 3- TYPE 2 It is used to express imaginary situations which are contrary to facts in the present, and, therefore, are unlikely to happen in the present or future, we can use either were or was for all persons. Example,
 If I were travelling around the world, I would travel by train. 4- TYPE 3 It is used to express imaginary situations which are contrary to facts in the past. They are also used to express regrets or criticism. Example,
 If he had told me about his situation, I would have helped him. 5- MIXED CONDITIONALS. We can form mixed conditionals, if the context permits it, by combining an if clause from one type with a main clause from another Example,
 If the plane landed late last night, he will not be on time for work today.
