We had requests for a lesson about the verbs hope and wish. We set out to make one video and realized we couldn’t. We needed to make three videos!
Hope and wish often appear in exams like IELTS, Cambridge First Certificate and TOEFL because the grammar’s tricky. But watch our examples, see them in action and we’ll make it easy.
The first video is about how we use these verbs to say nice things to people and it looks at some other ways to give good wishes too.
The second video looks at seven structures we use with these verbs to talk about possibilities and regrets in the present.
And here’s a video about how we use the verbs to talk about past hopes and wishes.
Here’s hoping and wishing you find these videos useful! If you do, why not share them with a friend?
