We all have things in our past we'd like to forget. Think about your past. Did you make a mistake? Did an opportunity pass by you? Well, with the third conditional, you can change the past...change the past...change the past...
I'm not a regular doctor. I'm William Walliams and I'm a scientist. Now, here's the science base.
我不是一個普通的博士。我是 William Walliams，我是個科學家。現在，這裡是科學基地。
One day I was in my science laboratory, where I do science, and I thought about my past. My past could be different, with little changes to my past actions. But that's impossible to change the past. Then I found the answer! We imagine an alternative past with a third conditional.
Person X is living his or her life, which is represented by this timeline. But he or she feels bad about a situation in the past, showing here as mistake A. He or she wants to imagine this event didn't happen, or happened differently. They can get a second chance with the third conditional!
X 人士度過他或她的人生，那人生用這條時間軸表示。但他或她對過去發生的一個狀況感到懊惱，在這裡顯示為錯誤 A。他或她想要想像這件事情並沒有發生，或發生得不一樣。他們可以用與過去事實相反的假設語氣來得到第二次機會!
The third conditional lets you imagine an alternative past...in your mind. It works like a spell in Harry Potter. Simply say a third conditional sentence in the correct form like this: for the situation we want to change, "if" and "had" or "had not" for a negative, or "had not" together "hadn't," and a verb three, or past participle. We want to change this situation. And we imagine the results of that change, using "would" or "would not" for a negative, or the contraction "wouldn't"; "have" and a verb three, or past participle.
與過去事實相反的假設語氣讓你想像出另一種過去...在你的腦袋裡。那效果就像《哈利波特》裡面的咒語。只要以正確型態說出一個像這樣與過去事實相反的假設語氣句子：對於我們想要改變的情況，「if(如果)」和「had(曾)」或否定的「未曾(had not)」，或「had not」連在一起成「hadn't」，加上一個動詞第三態，或稱過去分詞。我們想要改變這個情況。我們想像那變動造成的結果，使用「would(會)」或否定的「would not(不會)」，或縮寫「wouldn't」；「have(曾)」和一個動詞第三態，或過去分詞。
For example, Person X will say, "If I hadn't drunk tequila last night, I wouldn't have had a hangover this morning."
Hello, Person Y! What would you like to change from the past?
I didn't study for my test.
And what happened?
So, let's imagine a different past.
If I had studied, I would have passed.
It's that easy! Get your second chance today with William Walliams' third conditional! Call now! You won't regret it.
就是那麼簡單!今天就用 William Walliams 的與過去事實相反的假設語氣來獲得第二次機會吧!馬上來電!你不會後悔的。
