Hi Lil’ Ruby Rose,

I decided to write again, once I sent you a reply for your post,but unfortunately I didn’t get any answer up to now. So if possible I’d be very grateful if you could answer my questions, but if not, that another teacher could also help me.

Well, in spite of some of the sentences below aren’t the sort of thing that a native would use as you said, are they gramatically right? I even changed the wrong ones (nº 8 of the first set and nº 3 of the second one). Could you (or any other teacher) check the sets again and give me a reply, please?

1) The man didn’t clear up the crime. – I wish he had cleared up the crime.

2) I wasn’t qualified for the city’s summer youth program. - I wish I had been qualified for the city’s summer youth program.

3) You didn’t need my help. - I wish you had needed my help.

4) They weren’t happy. – I wish they had been happy.

5) She didn’t print the paper. – I wish she had printed the paper.

6) He didn’t didn’t laugh at my jokes. – I wish he had laughed at my jokes.

7) We weren’t wise enough. – I wish we had been wise enough.

8) I didn’t take good grades on my final exams. – I wish I had taken good grades on my final exams.

Ex. 9 Wish + would (future time)

1. He won’t move to New Orleans. – I wish he would move to New Orleans.

2. You won’t graduate in history. – I wish you would graduate in history.

3. They’ll get rid of some old photos. – I wish they wouldn’t get rid of some old photos.
