Teacher: Good morning boys and girls! Today we are going to talk about our regrets.
The Present Time
"Wish Clauses" are used to talk about our regrets. We have some situations we don't like and we would like to change them. These situations may be in the present, future or past.
Now, we are going to learn the present time - wish clauses in English.
How to form a wish clause sentence for the present:
For the Present Tenses or modals , we use the Simple Past Tense or Past Modals:(Situation: I know the truth.) I wish I didn't know the truth.
(Situation: She drinks cold water.) I wish she didn't drinkcold water.
(Situation: He can't swim.) He wishes he could swim.
Rule 2If our situation is negative, we make a positive wish clause.(Negative Situation: They don't live in this city.) We wish they lived in this city.
Rule 3If our situation is positive, we make a negative wish clause.(Positive Situation: Mary tells lies.) Her parents wish Mary didn't tell lies.
Rule 4We usually use "were" instead of "was" in wish clauses.(Situation: I am sick.) I wish I weren't sick.
Checking of the homework: Students will learn grammar material and give their own examples.
"Wish" and "If only" have the same meaning and both can be used to talk about our present or past regrets – things that we would like to change.
