thanks MrBenjamin for this lesson, it’s good.
in the exemple (befor the last one) you’ve said :
“if Mary had a little lamb, we would have had a frirm”
i guess you mean :
“if Mary had had a little lamb, we would have had a frirm” , it should be past participle instead of the past simpt. thanks again

Profile photo of struggleForEng struggleForEng

    You’re right !

    Profile photo of Yolclout Yolclout

Hallo Benjamin,

There is a sentence :
If Marry had a litte lamb, we would have had a farm.

Is this correct ?

If Marry had had a litte lamb, we would have had a farm.

Profile photo of adrijana adrijana

    if bieleve you are right.

    Profile photo of sugeon73 sugeon73

    Yeah, you are probably right. If + past participle (had) equals past simple, and we have to have past perfect so it is :If+had+ past participle (had).
    Thats why “If Mary had had ..” is right. (but I could be wrong :) )

    Profile photo of ChrisOldo ChrisOldo

      I have looked it up in many different sources, and right form of this sentence should be:
      If M had had a little lamb, we would have had a farm. In this way I learned the third conditional properly. I am preparing me for FCE as well. Good luck ChrisOldo.

      Profile photo of adrijana adrijana

guys could ou help me about conjugation, first read this pargraph :
“Woods university had a big problem, and the problem had to do with the budget,Because the university had not been given a big enough bugdet to operat in the way that it was used to operationg for the coming year”
my problem is in the latest statment “it was used to operationg for the coming year”
how does an “ing” verb come after “to” , i guess this statment lacks the verb “to be”,so it should be like:
“it was used to be operationg for the coming year”,all of you are welcom to clarify this point.

Profile photo of struggleForEng struggleForEng

    “be used to” is a phrase. So, “to” in that sentence doesnt necessitate a verb.
    “be used to + something”

    Profile photo of mgunen mgunen

struggleforEng .I might be wrong,but what i think is here: “used to” use as a preposition.

Profile photo of Annie Annie

    why not it could be,thanks, i’ll search more about it

    Profile photo of struggleForEng struggleForEng

High Benjamin: if Mary had a little lamb: pas simple not past perfect

Profile photo of takayashu takayashu

    Good observation Takayashu.I noticed as well. Is it not had had? Or can we use the simple past as well?

    Profile photo of siby siby

Thank You

Profile photo of Hamada Badawy Hamada Badawy

Can we say that the rule for the 3rd conditional is:
If + Past Perfect + Would||Could + Present Perfect ?
Thanks a lot Benjamin

Profile photo of zimil zimil

    No, this is not correct.
    Rule for Present Perfect is:
    I/you/we/you/they + have + past participle
    he/she/it + has + past participle

    But 3rd conditional requires for all persons to use HAVE. So when she/he/it is used it is required to use HAVE also.

    Sample:
    If she had studied hard, she would HAVE passed the exam. (correct)

    But in your case of present perfect, then it should be:
    If she had studied hard, she would HAS passed the exam. (wrong)

    From above it is clearly we should not write the rule as “Present Perfect” but:
    If + Past Perfect + Would/Could/Should +
    would + HAVE + Past Participle.

As many students wrote above, I think there´s a mistake in the example of the farm. That´s not the 3rd conditional.

Well, I think that the Third Conditional is the last one to learn an Upper-Intermediate Level but when you use Mixed Conditional Forms then you are studying for an Advanced Level, this is my case, I had studying this forms before but it’s a good idea to review them to remember and practice again. Thanks a lot teacher Benjamin or Ben, a good performance and explanation in British English. Regards.

Hi Benjamin.
First of all thank you for your always very lively lessons. In the example “If Mary Had a lamb…” doesn’t it should be “If Mary had had a lamb” ?
Many thanks.

Profile photo of karik44 karik44

I’m glad for this lesson even though you made a mistake. In the example: If Mary had a little lamb, we would have had a farm, as you can see there’s something missing right there, It should be like this: If Mary had “had” a little lamb, we would have had a farm. when we use the past perfect it comes with the past participle. Let me know if I’m wrong or not, Thanks :)

Why should I use “gotten” instead of just “got”? There is not such a word as “gotten” in British English. The 3rd form of “get” is “got”, isn’t it? Do you consider exactly American English?

Dear Benjamin,
I thought he example “If Mary had a little lamb …” at the third conditional must be “If Mary had had a little …” or am i wrong.
I enjoy your method of teaching.

Tiny

Profile photo of tinyvissers tinyvissers

    That is exactly the question I wanted to asked too.
    “Mary had a little lamb” is past simple.
    “Mary had had a little lamb” is past perfect.

    I also checked bellow web site:
    https://www.englishgrammar.org/have-had-and-had-had/
    and double “had” is probably correct syntax.

    Maybe in the song is some poet freedom or informal use.

It’s all about conditionals!
Zero conditional:

If it rains, the floor becomes wet.

First conditional:

If it rains, the downtown’s main road will be slippery for a walk.

Second conditional:

If it were rained that night, I could go outside and have a cup of coffee.

Third conditional:

If it had not rained that night, I would have met my uncle at the airport.

Thanks Benjamin for the great videos and helping us learn the structure and construction of conditionals right from Zero to Third level.

Profile photo of Ashifa Ashifa

If you work hard, you can pass.
If you work smartly, you will get good grades.
If you were a hard worker, you could top the exam.
If you had worked hard, you would have passed.

Profile photo of Ashifa Ashifa

I don’t know if I’m thinking right but, both second and third conditional are about your regerts , however the second is about your state or how were you , and the third is about actions. For instance :
Second conditional:
If the bus were faster, I wouldn’t be late. ( State then state)
Third conditional:
If the bus had arrived earlier, I wouldn’t have delayed ( action then action ) . If your understanding missed up , just ignore me :)
