I hope to go to a country where some terrorists activities are going on. It is confined to a certain part of that country.

1. I would often be told not to travel to rebel held areas of the country.

Is the above sentence fine?
What is the necessity of use 'would' here?

To write 'I would be told to do or not to do something' looks odd to me.

For example,we say 'would be thieves'. That is a different context.
For example, we say ' I would be extremely grateful to you if you would ... ' . That too is a different context.


Recently Marius and a few others taught me the different ways to use the word 'would'.

In a hypothetical situation, you could use 'would'.
When giving advice you could use 'would'.

For me some sentence like the following is the acceptable one in this context.
I have been advised not to travle to rebel held areas of the country.

Would here is not hypothetical.

It tells you that:

On an habitual basis/What happened frequently was that I was told not to travel to rebel held areas of the country.
Thanks Marius

Let us take another example.

Doctors ask people to avoid eating fatty foodstuff if they have elevated LDL value.

2. He would often be advised by doctors to refrain from eating fatty food.
I have not been to learn to write in the above manner.

The way I write this is as follows:
He has often been advised by doctors to refrain from eating fatty food.

In my case, I train 3 times a week at the gym. So I am used to saying the following:
I have always/often been advised by doctors to train very often.
I will not get serious illness as I train very often.

My question is whether the second sentence is fine.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
That would is used when you write a story about the past.

So you would not write the following in the given context.
2. He would often be advised by doctors to refrain from eating fatty food.

You told me the following is correct.
1. I would often be told not to travel to rebel held areas of the country.
I can't figure out the flaw in the second sentence.

You should use it only when writing a story about what happened to him in the past.

Yes, Marius
So in the following you find past tense of the word 'will' and the past tense of the word 'tell'. Then I can say this was a past event. This may have happened 10 years ago.
