In this English Grammar lesson in Hind you will learn the correct use of ‘I wish’ to express a wish or regret in English. There are two ways to use ‘i wish’ In English conversation and most people often make some common grammar mistakes while using it.
1. I wish + Past simple tense
Used when you regret doing something in the present and that can be still done. You can correct a mistake or situation in the present.
2. I Wish + Past perfect tense
Again used to express a regret in the present, but whatever wrong you’ve done cannot be reversed, you can’t do anything about it in the present.
We never use ‘I wished’ – never add an -ed in such sentence structures. I hope this English grammar lesson will teach you how to make sentences with ‘I wish’ and you will use them correctly in spoken English. Also take a Grammar quiz at the end of the lesson to understand how much you have learned from this lesson.
