      • Talking about your present situation:
      • I wish I had a cold drink now!
      • wish + past simple
    • Present situation
      • -I haven't got any money. I wish I had some money.
      • -I don't earn much money. I wish I earned a lot of money.
      • After wish you can use was or were with I,he,she,it.
      • -I wish I were/was taller.
      • The same form can be used to talk about someone else's situation.
    • Present situation
      • However, there is another structure that you use to talk about actions that take place in the present, but you want them to change in the future.
      • This structure is used to talk about another person, and generally about things you don't like.
      • The structure is:
      • wish + would/could + infinitive.
    • Present situation
      • Your friend is always borrowing money from you because he never seems to have his bank card with him. You could say to him:
      • -I wish you wouldn't borrow money from me. -I wish you would remember to go to the bank from time to time.
    • Let’s practise (simple past/ would):
      • I wish I ____________(have) long dark hair.
    • The answer is:
      • had
    • I wish it _______(stop) snowing, we want to go out!

    • The answer is:

    • Future situation
      • When you talk about the future, you use the same structure as you use to talk about present states.
      • wish + past simple
      • -I have to go to the dentist tomorrow. I wish I didn't have to go to the dentist tomorrow.
    • Future situation
      • -I'll have to do some extra work at the weekend.
      • I wish I didn't have to do any extra work at the weekend.
    • My brother will come next week. I wish my brother _______(not/come) next week.
    • The answer is: didn’t come
      • Present Situations:
        • Wish + Simple past
        • Wish + Would/wouldn’t
        • Future Situations:
        • Wish + Simple past
    • Complete the sentences so that they are true for you:
      • About me:
      • -I wish I could ___________ (ability)
      • -I wish I was more _______(adjective of personality)
      • -I wish I wasn’t so _______ (adjective of personality).
      • -I wish I had _______( personal possession).
      • Things people do that annoy me:

      • -I wish young people today would/wouldn’t ______.
      • -I wish there was a law against people who _____.
    • Wishes about the past: regret
      • When you think about a situation in the past, naturally you can't do anything to change it.
      • Therefore this is a way of expressing regret. The structure you use is:
      • wish + past perfect.
      • - Now we've missed the train. I wish we hadn't missed the train.
    • You were too slow getting ready to go out. I wish you __________(not/be) so slow getting ready.
    • The answer is:
      • Hadn’t been
    • I promised my friend we'd arrive on time. I wish I ___________(not/promise) we'd arrive on time, because he’ll be waiting for us.
    • Complete the sentences so that they are true for you:
      • I wish I ____________ (learn) when I was younger.
      • I wish I ____________ ((not)buy) recently.
      • I wish I _____________(see) in concert when I was younger.
      • I wish I ____________((not) do) when I was younger.
    • Notes:
      • You don't need to repeat all the verbs all the time:
      • -My flat is cold. I wish it wasn't. -You smoke. I wish you wouldn't. -She told him! I wish she hadn't.
      • You can use If only instead of I wish with these tenses:
      • -If only the bus would come. If only I hadn’t bought those shoes.
