Thursday, November 5th 2009

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!!!

Friday, November 6th 2009


    You are right. You do use the simple past. “I wish I WERE rich” is correct. Thanks, hello!

    Monday, November 16th 2009

      Both are correct: I wish I was/were rich.

      Friday, August 13th 2010

        don’t i know it

        Monday, October 25th 2010

        Both are correct, but:
        I WISH I WAS RICH (informal)
        I WISH I WERE RICH (formal).

        Saturday, July 20th 2013

      thanks valen.i very very like you :”)

      Saturday, November 13th 2010

      I wish I could find a job by studying you everyday lessons english Valen. Thank You Very much and God Bless you.

      Tuesday, August 9th 2011

      WAS is singular and WERE is plural.

      I wish I was rich!

      It makes sense to me


      Saturday, August 13th 2011

      i like your way of speaking.

      Wednesday, October 26th 2011

      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

      Tuesday, February 7th 2012

      yes. i love u teaching is good iD

      Wednesday, February 15th 2012

      that’s nice from you
      if you’re mistake you must accept the mistake thanks for all…………..

      Wednesday, June 6th 2012

      Teacher, if you said so then the question 3 should be also like ‘I wish I were the boss of the company’ right

      Tuesday, July 24th 2012

      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.
      thank you!

      Thursday, June 6th 2013

      Hi valen
      realy i don’t undersating this lesson

      Thursday, February 19th 2015

    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]…

    Tuesday, November 17th 2009

      For people like us (latins) this explanation is excelent. Thank you so much

      Saturday, January 2nd 2010

        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…


        Saturday, January 16th 2010

      Thank you so much for taking the time to compose this explanation: excellent, thorough, and clear.
      Happy Learn

        Thursday, May 2nd 2013

      Thanks for your explanation. It was really wonderful, it really enough to understand when I can use were or was. Thanks again.

Sunday, November 8th 2009

Monday, November 9th 2009

.. 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..

Monday, November 9th 2009

    Yes, lemie. It is the simple past. “I wish I were” is correct :)

    Monday, November 16th 2009

      Hi Valen!
      Is it true : ” I wish I were rich…” ? not ” I wish I was rich…”

      Monday, March 8th 2010

      It is not the simple past. It’s the subjunctive.

Wednesday, November 7th 2012

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…

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

Thursday, January 10th 2013

    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.

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?

Tuesday, January 29th 2013

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

Wednesday, April 17th 2013

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?

Wednesday, April 17th 2013

Really Nice service you are doing to the English learners

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…

Wednesday, April 23rd 2014

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.

Thursday, May 15th 2014

Thank you.

Tuesday, May 20th 2014

I am improving my English since I discovery this website. So, I am thankful.
