Hi everybody,

I would like to know the answers for the following questions:

1)
Are the following sentences correct?

If I were a UK nationalist, I would say that as a UK driver…
If I were not a UK nationalist, I would say that like a UK driver…

2)
I think when we combine a real situation with an imaginary situation (using ‘as if’) the verbs in both clauses must be past simple? Are the following sentences correct?

He played well as if he was a talented player.
He plays well as if he was a talented player.
He is playing well now as if he was a talented player.

Is ‘were’ possible in the place of ‘was’?

Thank you

#1 -- More text is required in place of the ellipses before a decision can be made.
#2 -- As they stand, 'were' is preferred in formal writing.
Thanks MM

(Assume I am a UK nationalist)

1) As a UK driver I have a right-hand drive car.

2) Like a USA driver I have a left-hand drive car.

Are the following sentence correct?

3) Tiki spoke to me for hours as if we had known for ages.

4) Tiki talks to me very informally as if we had known for ages.

(Assume I am a UK nationalist-- Why? This has nothing to do with your question as far as I know. Both sentences are acceptable.)

Are the following sentence correct?-- No.

3) Tiki spoke to me for hours as if we had known each other for ages.
4) Tiki talks to me very informally as if we had known each other for ages.
Thanks very much for your help and time, MM

Hi,
Why not Tiki talks to me as if we knew each other for ages?
