What would you do if ... ? This is the beginning of a question we probably face every day in different situations. We are always considering our reactions to a lot of experiences, decisions we have to make regarding all aspects of our life. We try to think about everything logically and we are probably unable to come to a satisfactory reason or explanation for our actions -that's a different subject, though. And it's in those daily situations when we are using the hypothetical second conditional with hypothetical results in our present or future. Let's see some examples:
- What if I saw a student cheating in an exam?
- If it wasn't / weren't for this blog, I think my pupils wouldn't read or write anything in English.
- Supposing the price of oil doubled tomorrow, what do you think would happen?
As a result, day after day, we go through these hypothetical situations. Even when we listen to music. There are a lot of songs that make us think about what our life would be like if something were different or we could change something in it.
Here's a selection of songs. Enjoy it and if you like one, don't hesitate to listen to its complete version!
Finally, would you like to write a short comment on what you would change in your life if it were possible for you?
You are allowed to respectfully allude to a wide range of topics: your studies, your personality, the current situation in your country, ... The sky is the limit!
What if you could change the world!!! Try it!!!
