Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Yes, that can be used. "If I had have applied for that job when I had the chance, I might be working there right now".

(And I know this is replying to a five year old post)

Whaaa??? Why not just "If I had applied ...? Why do so many people want to add a new tense to the English language? Emotion: smile

I'd have had a lot of difficulty understanding your question had I had not have had an English teacher for a mother.

I have no idea if the above sentence is correct grammatically but as a native English speaker it sounds correct. If I had haveused any other example I 'd have confused myself Emotion: big smile
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
yo CalifJim, how do you mention "have had" in a sentance?

I don't understand your question. This thread is about "had have", which is not a valid tense in English - not about "have had", which you are asking about. "have had" is the normal past perfect tense. Emotion: smile

No, but it's worth noting that "I would" and "I had" can both be contracted to "I'd" (rhymes with ride,wide,tried)

Eg.
I'd have done it differently if I were you.
I would have done it differently.

i'd better go now because it is late.
I had better go now...

No you can't say "if I had have applied", you can only say "if I had applied", the extra "have" in this case is not needed, as the tense auxiliary for the verb is "had"
