Living is a process that involves lots of wishes and regrets. Whenever we imagine our lives in a few years ahead or look back at the past, there they are! Do you already know how to express them in English?
We use «Wish + Person / Thing + Would» to talk about things we want to happen, or stop happening because they annoy us.
I wish all this snow would stop falling already!
We DO NOT use «Wish + Would» for a wish about yourself.
I wish I would be stronger.
We use «Wish + Past Simple» to talk about things we would like to be different in the present / future (but which are impossible or unlikely).
I wish I was ten years younger!
I wish I could understand what they're saying.
I wish I became a millionaire within two years.
P.S. After wish you can use «Was» or «Were» with I, he, she, and it.
«I wish I was taller» OR «I wish I were taller».
We use «Wish + Past Perfect» to talk about things that happened or didn't happen in the past and which you now regret.
I wish I hadn't bought those shoes.
I wish you'd told me the truth.
What is/are you wish(es) and/or regret(s)? Tell us, as long as you can share them of course!
