Third Conditional

чт, 03/29/2018 - 12:54 Марина

Third Conditional (Третье условное наклонение) – это конструкция, которую мы используем, когда мы выражаем сожаление по поводу того, что не произошло в прошлом.

Предложения такого типа всегда состоят из двух частей: условия и результата.

e.g. If I had studied better I would have passed this exam.

Для образования этой формы существует специальная схема:

If+ Past Perfect – would+have+Past Participle

e.g. If I had done more exrcise, I would have been healthier.

  • Иногда вместо would have мы можем использовать should have, could have, might have. 

e.g. If you had bought a lottery ticket, you might have won.

  • В Third Conditional части предложения могу меняться местами. Смысл предложения от этого не изменится.

e.g. I would have invited John if I had seen him.

       If I had seen him, I would have invited John.
