🎼 Learn English with songs: The Wynners - Sha La La La

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t867NA7bYUo

Sha La La La

There's a girl on my mind
and She knows I'm thinking of her
On my way through the day and the night
the star shines above me
she's been gone for some time
but I know I truly love her
And I'm singing the song
Hoping She'll be back when She hears it

My heart go sha la la la la
Sha la la in the morning
Woo.... Sha la la la la 
Sha la la in the sunshine
Sha la la la la Sha la la in the evening
Sha la la la la
Sha la la la just for you

If your love's gone away just like mine
you feel like crying
Sing along may be once may be twice
Just try it together
Some sweet days no one knows she'll return

and you'll be happy
shadows fade in the sun
Listen to your heart, it is singing

🎼 Learn English with songs: The Wynners - My Fair Share

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPDQ2qonk1Q

My Fair Share 

Lost lost like a child's first thought
I must have arms to hold me
Lost without loving care
I must have my fair share

Fair fair is a changing word
But fair is an honoured promise
Justice if you're still there
I will have my fair share 

Justice is a lady
Lay me down with Justice
In a long white gown
With a breath of love we can share

Share sleep with me if you dare

Celebrate my fair share

Grammar Test - Third Conditional


What is the answer to this question?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


Answer: 
 he would have bought a car  (Answer  1)    

Solution:       
If he had won the lottery yesterday, he would have bought a car.


---------------------------

Third Conditional

The pattern of the Third Conditional is as follows:

If + (Past Perfect Tense), would have + (Past Participle)



1. We use the Third Conditional when we talk about impossible conditions that they were happened in the past and we cannot change the result.

Examples

1a. If he had won the lottery yesterday, he would have bought a car.

1b. He would have bought a car if he had won the lottery yesterday.


2a. If it had rained yesterday, I would have stayed at home.

2b. I would have stayed at home if it had rained yesterday.


3a. If I had seen Sarah, I would have told her the secret.

3b. I would have told her the secret if I had seen Sarah.


4a. If I had studied harder, I would have passed the exam.

4b. I would have passed the exam if I had studied harder.


5a. If Jeffrey had had time yesterday, he would have gone to see her.

5b. Jeffrey would have gone to see her if he had had time yesterday.



2. We can also use ‘should’, ’could’ or ‘might’ instead of ‘would’ in the Third Conditional.

Example

1a. If we had saved more, we would have bought a big house.

1b. If we had saved more, we could have bought a big house. 

1c. If we had saved more, we might have bought a big house.
