    • WISHES
    • WISHES The main use of 'wish' is to say that we would like things to be different from what they are, that we have regrets about the present situation. Examples: TRUE SITUATION (PRESENT) I am not rich. WISH: I wish I were(was) rich.
    • TRUE SITUATION (PRESENT) Luis does not speak English. WISH: I wish Luis spoke English. I wish I was rich. He wishes he lived in Paris. They wish they'd chosen a different leader. Notice that the verb tense which follows 'I wish' is 'more in the past' than the tense corresponding to its meaning. I'm too fat. I wish I was thin. I never get invited to parties. I wish I got invited to parties. It's raining. I wish it wasn't raining. I went to see the latest Star Wars film. I wish I hadn't gone. In the case of 'will' , where 'will' means 'show willingness' we use 'would'. He won't help me. I wish he would help me. You're making too much noise. I wish you would be quiet. You keep interrupting me. I wish you wouldn't do that. .In more formal English, we use the subjunctive form 'were' and not 'was' after 'wish'. I wish I were taller. I wish it were Saturday today. I wish the options were a little clearer. CLICK ON THIS WISHES
