If I were a millionaire, I would travel all around the world. I could also start a new life. And I should do it properly in a new country, too. As the teacher said, it´d be a dream coming true.

Nice lesson, Benjamin. However, the quiz needs amending.

Please note that question 7 and 8 are NOT examples of the 2nd conditional; they are mixed conditional sentences (3rd + 2nd). As for question 9, both “was” and “were” are correct in current English. However, in testing situations and in formal writing I always recommend that you choose “were” in case the test key is imperfect.

Profile photo of David David

I don’t understand why you use WERE with I which I think prefer is WAS. Thanks!

The reason for using were instead of was (after I in this case) or the grammar or the grammar name of or grammar expression for it is called SUBJUNCTIVE MOOD.

There is possibility to use was instead of were and it is and was using in some cases, but it is essentially grammatically incorrect or has essentially different meaning.

There is quite nice article about it here:


Profile photo of LeopoldMarek1 LeopoldMarek1

    This is exactly what I was wrong and I needed additional info.

    I answered WAS to bellow question:
    9. Cindy could come out and play with you if she _____ a good girl.
    Which is wrong. Correct is WERE, because WHERE is used for all persons.

    From site you have provided it is also very interesting exception. See bellow two examples:
    “If I WERE sick, I wouldn’t be here.”

    This is 2nd conditional: I + WERE. Because this is hypothetical, it isn’t true right now. I am not sick right now.

    But bellow is very interesting:
    “If I WAS sick, she would give me medicine that tasted terrible.”

    In this case “I + WAS” is not hypothetical and so it is not 2nd conditional. “If I was sick” it means “Whenever I was sick …” This is true, not hypothetical, and it just look like story telling.

If I were a native spiker I wouldn’t learn this lesson.

Profile photo of Aurora.win Aurora.win

    Many native speakers should also learn little bit of grammar. Sometimes I wonder why some strange form was used, but it well may be to the wrong grammar, because of modern day to day speech.

why we have to use ” she were ” instead of ” she was “? Hoping Mr. Benjamin would reply this comment. Thank you :)

Profile photo of bellaamore bellaamore

    If she studied she would be a good student. — it is a standard form of the 2nd Conditional.
    If she were to study she would be a good student. — if you use «were to do smth», you want to emphatize that this situation is highly unlikely to happen.

    Hi Parya. The second one is correct. Best wishes

    Profile photo of Soei Soei

    After word “to” should always come “infinitive” so “see” in you sample.

    But this is some kind phrase, so correct is:
    -I am looking forward to seeing you.

    I would also like to have an explanation why is this exception, if someone knows.

Something like that…

Benjamin, Do a lesson in a native way of speaking.(ignoring consonant sounds and etc.) I’ve been listening to all of you for a long time, although I do not usually log in, You people have never done even a single lesson speaking as fast as native speakers usually do. For the convenience of listeners, you may make them understand what you said before.
Benjamin Please, Do At least one lesson, I have commented the same on Adam’s Channel(an American Teacher on engvid)
I’ll be indebted to you if you do this for me.

Hello! Thank you for the video!
I have a question about the quiz. 8th question – is it a 3rd conditional?
If I HAD passED my driving exam, I WOULD HAVE GONE on the road trip with you.

And 7th question:
If I HAD studiED earlier, I ___________ have to stress out the night before my big test.
It’s not a Past Simple.

Just to understand:) Thank you!

In 7 and 8, present perfect were used in if clauses.
Due to we are speaking strictly about second and not mixed conditionals, we should only use simple past, shouldn’t we?

Great lesson.
Now the exercise time
If + past simple + would/should/could + infinitive without TO

1. If I were an American girl, I wouldn’t have to prepare for the IELTS test.
2. If I were you, I would do anything to make it come true.
3. If I had the money you require, I should have given those to you for your medical treatment.
4. If I were a coco bird, I would fly all the skies and see the world right from above.
5. If only you were a great man, I would marry you and start a new.
6. I could buy a big home if I had not lend her my money.
7. If only there were some peanuts in the caddy, I could make an ice-cream shake and have fun.
8. I could go outside and enjoy rain if there were some park in the society.
9. If only I knew how to drive, I could visit my parents during such wonderful weather these days.
10. If only I had studied A levels, I wouldn’t have to study harder to improve my English language skills.
11. I could call my family to the big party at my home if I hadn’t ignored them a the time of my marriage.
