wouldhas many uses. For example, it can be used for a polite request (“would you like…”), to express a conditional statement (“If I could, I would…”), a past action (In the past, I would always do…”), or even a personal preference (“I would like…”). In this lesson, I will cover all the various uses of
wouldand give you many examples of how it is used. Would you like to watch this video? I think it would be useful for you! And would you please do the quiz after watching?
? I got full! <3. Thank you once again Gill!.
Very important subject.Thank you,Gill.
very interesting, I will review. Thanks
thank you for your very useful lesson.
Please, could you explain where the differnece between AUXILIARY and MODAL verb is ?
Or is it the same ?
Hi Adriana, I can help answer this one! A modal verb is an auxiliary verb. It “helps” and needs other verbs to be used.
She can do it.
We should leave early.
They’ll be angry if we don’t finish this.
I hope this helps!
Thank you very much, Alex.
It means every modal verb is an auxiliary verb.
Thanks Still, you are Excellent teacher.
Thank you Gill
9/10 thank Gill
But we need to know not only about SHOULD WOULD and COULD. There are other words to watch about , like WILL NEED and so on.
Would you be so kind to make other videos about these words too?
Thank you so much Gill!!!
If I won the lottery, I would travel to London to meet you ;)
thanks a lot. so useful. just sometimes the quality of the film drop down in many other Engvid videos.
I liked the lesson.
I lovely your class.
Gill is cool!
very good lesson…
I hope to remember main points of all this!!!
but it was really like to have a teacher at home :)
Thank you Gill.It’s Always quiet to learn with you.
Thank you very much Gill for aggregating all cases where we can use this verb. I am going to look at “could” video
Hi, I would like to practice my speaking English. I leave my WhatsApp number in my profile. Feel free to contact me.
thank you. It was very interresting.
Is this correct?
“I would like to talk about” or should it be
I Will like to talk about….
Hi Chiazor, the MUCH more common set phrase is “I would like to talk about” in this case. It can have a present or near future meaning. However, “I will like to talk about” is possible, but only has a future meaning. It can also be misunderstood because it COULD sound like you’re making a promise that you WILL enjoy talking about something in the future.
Stick with “I would like to talk about.” :)
the question number 8 the answer was (I used to polish my shoes every day, but I don’t do that anymore.)
why he doesn’t do that any more
i understood that he used to polish his shoes that is meaning it always are dirty
would you like to reply to me please
The sentence is just hypothetical or conditional and it implies that he used to do it before but he stopped dude to some reason – this could be any reason.
Thank you Gill.

I have a question, why in this sentence “I would’ve cooked a meal, but I didn’t have time.” we do not say “but i had not had time”, is it not a third conditional where we use past perfect?
Thank you in advance

Hello Could you forgive my question but are you sure there isn’t an error Here
I would’ve cooked a meal, but I didn’t have time..I think that maybe it should be better to write I would’ve looked
got 100%..thank mam Gill
I have got only 8…
thank you Gill, the lesson is really helpful .
Thank you. It was very detailed & informative…
I got 9/10
Thanks for the lesson Gill !
Thank you. I enjoy with your classes. Very interesting.
I got 10 correct out of 10. Thanks so much for giving me lessons. Teacher Gill is great to explain the lesson.
Please, take a look at number 7 question, there is an error. The correct answer counts as incorrect in the final result. Was getting 9/10 everytime. Thanks.
Which answer do you think is the correct one?
You are right. I guess I misunderstood. “I used to polish my shoes every day, but I don’t do that anymore.” seems like the correct one. Still, kind of a tricky question, to me at least. Shouldn’t it be could instead of would in the question to fit the answer properly? Doesn’t would suggest regular past action?
Yes, “would” suggests regular past action. For this question, the key bit is past. “At one time” and “would” imply that you don’t polish your shoes any more.
If you still polish your shoes every day, you would just say “I polish my shoes every day” or “I have always polished my shoes every day”. I hope this helps.
Great and easy to understand , thank you
My favourite teacher.
Thanks to Gill, I got 100%…

Thank you Ms. Gill.
I just do not understand why you used the word ‘would’ instead of just ‘did’ in the following question: ‘Why would she leave her car here?’ Is there any special reason for that or both forms are mutually interchangeable? Thank you. :)
