The third conditional is used to express regret and talk about things we wish we could change about the past (but we can’t)! In this lesson, I’ll show you how to use it, share lots of examples, plus help you to practice!
The 3rd Conditional:
If + past perfect, perfect conditional (would have + past participle)
Stick about for the mini-quiz at the end of the lesson!

Hi Emma! Here are the sentences of the Quizz! (Ps: I love your Work, I'm a Fan! and love studying English with You on You Tube, Love from Brazil!)
– IF YOU HAD TOLD ME ABOUT YOUR TOUGH SITUATION, I WOULD HAVE HELPED YOU!
– IF YOU HAD TALKED TO ME ABOUT BRINGING A DISH TO THE DINNER PARTY, I WOULD HAVE PREPARED AND BROUGHT A DELICIOUS DESSERT! NOT COMING EMPTY-HANDED!
– IF HE HADN'T BEEN ON THE PHONE WHILE DRIVING, HE WOULDN'T HAVE GOT FINED!
– IF SHE HAD BROUGHT A RAIN JACKET WITH HERSELF DURING THE HIKE, SHE WOULDN'T HAVE GOT WET AND THEREFORE SICK!
I hope They're correct!
