thank you so mush
I wish you all the best!
thank you :D
I don’t know how to thank the founder of the website and all teachers here. Thanks a lot. You help us much in English
It’s our pleasure! I’m happy that the site has helped you.
valen i hope you re fine and have all you want :)
hi are you fine ? ok what i want say it s about wish and hope can i say( i wish i gonna there )thank you verry much . :)
Thank you very much Valen. Your way is simple and clear.
engvid is very good for me.
So either to me!
i really like to surf this website..thank you valen..
engVid is also very good for me;-)
thank u Valen
Hi, I woul like to know if your sentence is correct or not, you wrote I WISH I WAS RICH…….., but I know that one rule says that when you’re using wish to talk about things that you want to be true now, but that are not true you must use simple past after wish, but you have to use were instead of was after wish; so, your example should be I WISH I WERE RICH. I would like to know if I’m right or not. Thank you!!!
You are right. You do use the simple past. “I wish I WERE rich” is correct. Thanks, hello!
Both are correct: I wish I was/were rich.
don’t i know it
Both are correct, but:
I WISH I WAS RICH (informal)
I WISH I WERE RICH (formal).
thanks valen.i very very like you :”)
I wish I could find a job by studying you everyday lessons english Valen. Thank You Very much and God Bless you.
WAS is singular and WERE is plural.
I wish I was rich!
It makes sense to me
i like your way of speaking.
but there are some people says i wish i was rich but that”s wrong the right sentence is i wish i were rich right
yes. i love u teaching is good iD
that’s nice from you
if you’re mistake you must accept the mistake thanks for all…………..
Teacher, if you said so then the question 3 should be also like ‘I wish I were the boss of the company’ right
hi Valen. can you help me?
your last sentence ‘The strike begins tomorrow. I wish/hope the buses will still be running’.
may I use ‘I wish/hope the buses would still be running’? I know that people often use ‘would/could’ for the wishes in the future.
realy i don’t undersating this lesson
What you mention is the “subjunctive tense.” To express something imaginary, unreal, hypothetical…
A) I wish I were rich. I wish he were in Thailand. I wish she were my girlfriend.
The above is the formal, prescribed grammar… (they all express unreal or imaginary situations).
BUT, one can also say and hear:
B) I wish I was rich. I wish he was in Thailand. I wish she was my girlfriend.
Example (A) is prescribed, formal grammar (best for tests).
Example (B) is also used, even by native speakers. It is “wrong” only in the formal sense. It is “right” because native speakers say it all the time.
(A) I wish I were a better person.
(B) I wish I was a better person.
Which is correct? For a test, (A) is correct. For everyday usage, either (A) or (B) is correct, BUT you will probably hear (B) more often.
This is simply because the subjunctive tense is not used by native speakers in some situations; maybe the subjunctive sounds strange [it does!], maybe it is going out of style [perhaps some day it will]…
For people like us (latins) this explanation is excelent. Thank you so much
thank you for your explanation.. i got you.. easily,,
actually, korean english teacher explained to me that
after Wish, i must put the past plural verb all the time like i were, he were, she were…
Thank you so much for taking the time to compose this explanation: excellent, thorough, and clear.

I wish all of us here were having a great contribution in learning English as a second language though it’s not our native language coz I’m from Asia still we understand the basic language which is love.

thank you now i exelant for wish and hope :)
i wish every one understand this lesson
.. as what i have learned.. if you wish for sumthing which is impossible, you must use the simple past tense were. I WISH I WERE RICH.. IS THAT GRAMMATICALLY ACCEPTABLE..
Yes, lemie. It is the simple past. “I wish I were” is correct :)
Is it true : ” I wish I were rich…” ? not ” I wish I was rich…”
It is not the simple past. It’s the subjunctive.
thank u so much
you are take my heart . please return it
you’ve taken my heart , please return it
It’s pretty good for me. Now I understand the difference.
Great, it was so easy to understand the difference.

Please help me to rewrite this sentence “She won’t visit me again.” => “I wish….”. “Won’t” means future, but if we talk about future we use hope. So, how can I rewrite this sentence?
Thank you, Valen. but In this lesson, she speaks rather faster now and then. It’s sometimes difficult to catch for me.
Very very nice
I’m young boy. Just grade 9 :D I love English!

thank s valen good teachin us
Hi Valen, I like your explanation about “wish and hope”. I read the next …”He never help me with the dishes. I wish he would…”. Wish and then would, is for example, when you want or you like this person ( he ); changes. and he helps me with the dishes… For example, is it OK… you are at home, and it’s raining all day. and you think….”I wish it would stop raining…”. Wish …. would; is it ok?. b’cause you want to stop raining…
Thanks teacher you great i scored 4 out of 4.
i super like the video!!!

Hi Valen. It’s a little bit confusing with me sometimes. I suppose to regret about something about the present, I have to say: “I wish [subj] [past tense]. To regret about something about the past: “I wish [subj] [past perfect]. Instead, if I want someone/something change and I’m just complaining about, I have to use “I wish [subj] would [inifinite]. Now, sometimes it’s not so different,, isn’t it? (I wish it stopped raining/I wish it would stop raining) Are both these forms correct? or am I wrong? Cheers
Hi Marco. Try to watch Adam´s lesson about “The subjunctive: I wish”.
When “wish” stands for a non-real situation you need to drop one tense back. Eg: (real: it´s rainy now) so: I wish it would be dry tomorrow. / I wish it would stop raining. / I wish the rain would stop.
Maybe I´m wrong, but that´s the way I got it.
Thanks Dear Valen. I am your new student
Can i continue this Class for Ever?
Thankyou very much!
Many thanks for your nice and great online teaching.I’m a teacher but not english teacher,my field is electronic ,teaching for mor than 20 years and I can daresay you are a great teacher.One question about this video . Shouldn’t we say ” I wish,I were rich .” and not was rich? I have in my mind that for I and it,we have to use were not was. Please let me know which one is correct?
I wish I were an English teacher who has the ability to pronounce `dot com` such a cute way like you, Miss (?) Valen :D
I hope I’ll hear that sentence-fragment just a slight-little bit more than I can save my physical and mental healthness :D
im also a teacher but u are teaching without the past form of a verb be4 the wish used
I wish I was rich or I wich I were rich?
I done it without watching video moreover I got 100 out of 100.
Hi Valen! i know that u ain”t offering private English lessons that is so sad ’cause i wish u would , by the way nice and useful lesson. hope u will write me back i think i am falling for u. i can not beleave that i am letting u know this . lol just kidding hope u ain’t buying this… Be good Valen.

Oh and i also want to sat that you have a beautiful smile, I hope you can understand my english
Thank you Very much, I got 100% , What about your new lessons ?
valen, i think, was is grammatically incorrect with wish in hypothetical situation. would u plz clarify this?
How strange, theachers from the same Institute ( this website) teach different things:
One teaches that it isn’t supposed to be I wish I Was but just I wish I WERE ( if I remember right it was Adam), another teaches I wish I Was.
Perhaps, because one teacher is native, another not?
Really Nice service you are doing to the English learners
i love it the way you teach English.if you dont mind can i contact to you?. i would like to know `more how to writing a paragraph.
I love your way of delivering the information .

Hi Valen. I got confused with the last sentence: “I´ve eaten too much. I wish I hadn´t”. Can present perfect + past perfect be together in the same scenario? I thought past perfect could be used only with simple past…

I hope you will speak slow. I hope this is correct usage. Wish you the best.
I hope can learn more at you lessons.
miss valen thank you
but i know we say i wish i were not i wish i was rich
A traditional rule requires the use of were rather than was in a contrary-to-fact statement that follows wish: I wish I were (not was) lighter on my feet. While many people continue to insist on upholding this rule, the indicative was in such clauses can be found in the works of many well-known writers.
I am improving my English since I discovery this website. So, I am thankful.
Can I use: If I were you I would (…) instead If I was you (…)?
Even after completion of sixteen years of education i will not able to use the words wish and hope correctly. Thanks to ENDVID and special thanksssssssss to VALEN, now i can use it. Thanks Madam
This is my wish for you :
Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”
Wow , you are a poet!
thank you so much my best teacher .
I wanna thank u form bottom of my heart

Excellent class. I have a question.
Could it be possible to say: “I hope you to have a nice flight”, instead of “I hope you have a nice flight”. I mean the use of infinitive verb.
Waaaaaw i did it 100 but it was toooooo easy ;p
This is a wonderful and important lesson. You conveyed the message in a clear and a simple way. This proves that you are an able teacher. However, i would really, really, grateful if you elaborate and add another lesson about this topic.
Thanks for all your the wonderful lessons. They have been so useful to me and to my students.
Thank you D:
