Hi, fellas!! How are you?
I just realised a sad thing: we only have 4 months left before it’s time to change the calendar again
Oh my God, it’s true! 3 months only!
I wish time hadn’t flown so fast, but it did.
But soft, let’s make the most of the remaining 3 months by materializing our targets and enjoying the process as much as possible
Today, we’re going to continue on how to use ‘wish’. You can refresh a bit with last week’s session by visiting this link https://englishtips4u.com/2015/09/21/enggrammar-the-use-of-wish/
Apart from used in present time, ‘wish’ can also be used to express regrets over something that’s already in the past. #EngGrammar
It will be easier to comprehend with examples. Last week, I had my favourite DJ, Fedde Le Grand, performing at an event in town. #EngGrammar
Sadly, I couldn’t make it to the show because the tickets had been sold out weeks before. #EngGrammar
To express it, I can say ‘I really wish the tickets hadn’t been sold out.’ #EngGrammar
Now, let’s say you said something bad to a close friend, and after a couple of years, it turns out she’s still upset about it. #EngGrammar
You can apologise by saying to her ‘I wish I hadn’t said those terrible things.’ #EngGrammar
Feel free to switch to other subjects depending on the occasions, for example: He wished he hadn’t fallen in love with her. #EngGrammar
Or, ‘They wished they had taken better care of the old man.’ #EngGrammar
I feel bad for laughing at this :D
We can also use ‘wish’ to replace would like as in ‘I wish to see you tomorrow.’ #EngGrammar
Also, wishing something for someone, such as ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas.’ But we’ll continue it next week. #EngGrammar
