    nice :)

      Interesting lesson. I have a doubt about this example you used: if Mary had a little lamb, we would have had a farm. According to the rule, the first part of the sentence, we should use past perfect. Shouldn’t we? Thank you for your help Benjamin

      Fatimuccia

If had smiled more, I would have got laid..
This sentence make good sense to me..
Very nice..I regret though :-/

    if you had smiled more,you would have gotten laid.

I marked the wrong option to number 7 and 9. That’s always was my big trouble during the tests. I do need to learn more about “would have”…

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

struggleForEng

    You’re right !

    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.

adrijana

    if bieleve you are right.

    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 :) )

    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.

      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.

struggleForEng

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

    mgunen

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

Annie

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

    struggleForEng

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

takayashu

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

    siby

Thank You

Hamada Badawy

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

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.

Thanks Benjamin, this lesson was great..I got 10/10..If I hadn’t studied this lesson, I wouldn’t have learned this.. :)

marcos alexandre

Thank you for your great lesson, Benjamin.

Worawitoo

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

knopfler86

Hello,
Thanks for the lesson.I have a question about the sixth quiz: the past participle is been, not worried,isn’t it?
Thank you for your answer

Gilbert Emaha Pente

If I had not this comment,
You wouldn’t have seen it.
Thanks for the useful moment,
with that I had a meet.

svetashev

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.

angardiobel

    I have to fix a mistake in a verb tense of my last post, it was “I had been studying…”, so I think it’s the right form. Thanks.

    angardiobel

I didn’t catch anything, but I’ve got 8/10.
Benjamin, thanks a bunch (so funny phrase :)))

joe921

Thanks for this lesson. It is not easy to remember these structure, mainly on third conditional.

Fernando Moreira

zined

Thanks so much teacher Benjamin.
This lesson was Great!
Also interesting lesson
Really it’s not forgotten and important to learnt the third conditional such had/would/hadn’t/wouldn’t

Muad Abdiaziz

Great lesson , Benjamín. I love your body language, and your accent is wonderful.I wonder if you have videos to practice pronunciation with you !,

Zatufomo

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.
Angel

europeangel

If I had not watched this lesson 3 times I would not have passed the quiz. so I did ten of ten.

Thank very much! Benjamin

Br Kairat

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 :)

FranciscoJavier97

    I feel the same. There is the missed word “had”. Help us, plz))

Thank you guy!

your-boy-nikolay

Thank you! I love your classes.

Ramiro.

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?

destrkast

HI, Benjamin, could you please explain the #2.
“If I had been more friendly,” means this person was not polite at the conference? So he didn’t meet any friend there? Is that right?
2. I went to a conference last week. If I had been more friendly, I ___________ met more people.
couldn’t
would’ve
can’t
will

SelenaL

    Correct answer is:
    would’ve = would have

Thank you Benjamin

kheireddine007

Thank you Benjamin. Maybe someone has already asked that question : shouldn’t it be “If Mary had had a little lamb…”??

Tyrion

spox :)
thx a lot :)

Daro1975

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

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.

    rokaly

    I suppose you’re right. It is just a typo …
    take it easy :)
    Thank you Benjamin ♥♥♥

A question about the first example at the end of your video:

Safaa76

If I hadn’t skipped my English class a long, long time ago, I would have been able to study abroad.
If I hadn’t mixed around with bad boys, I would have studied harder.
I wish I could return to the past using the time machine.
If only I had studied harder, I would have passed the exam.

faizul

1. If I hadn’t watched the video, I would not have scored so well in the quiz.

2. I wouldn’t have passed the exam if I hadn’t worked hard.

3. I wouldn’t have made it up to university, if I hadn’t allowed for college.

4. I would not have been so worried about my cousin’s health if he had not overdosed himself with sleeping pills.

Ashifa

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.

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.

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 :)

“If Marry had a little lamb…” Beg a pardon, but shouldn’t the past perfect form look like: ” If Marry had had a little lamb…”. Because if it shouldn’t, so what is the difference with the Past Indefinite?)
