  • Hello. This is Jack from tofluency.com, and in this English lesson, you're going to see

  • some third conditional examples. You're also going to learn how to use it and then, at

  • the end of the video, you can practice it too. So, here is an example of me using the

  • third conditional.

  • If that guy had given me the correct directions, then I wouldn't have met my wife.” In

  • the video, I said, “If that guy had given me the correct directions, then I wouldn't

  • have met my wife.”

  • Now, in the full video, I was telling the story of how I met my wife. I left the hostel,

  • where I was staying and the guy gave me the wrong directions to the language school. So,

  • I went to the wrong language school. But I met my wife in this language school. So, if

  • that guy had given me the correct directions, then I wouldn't have met my wife.

  • We can say that we use the third conditional to talk about hypothetical situations in the

  • past. And we do this by using the past perfect + would have. If that guy had

  • given me the correct directions, then I wouldn't have met my wife.

  • Here are two more examples of the third conditional. "I would have gone if you had told me." You

  • didn't tell me and I didn't go but I would have gone if you had told me.

  • "If I had more time, I would have finished it." I didn't have more time and I didn't

  • finish it.

  • Now it's time to practice the third conditional. When I was younger, I found a wallet with

  • $200 in it. I was on a beach and I was looking for crabs. I was probably around 11.. 10 or

  • 11. And I found a wallet with $200 in it. I'm not going to tell you what I did, but

  • my question for you is this: what would you have done in my situation. So, leave your answers

  • below this video, thanks for watching, and I'll see you next time.
