Conditional sentences are used to talk about events and their results and are made of a condition and result.

Conditional sentences are used to talk about events and their results and are made of a condition and result.

The Third Conditional (past unreal/hypothetical)

It is used to imagine a different past than the one that happened and often to express regret. We describe a situation that didn’t happen and imagine the result of this situation.

If I had studied harder, I would have passed my exams. (I didn’t study and I didn’t pass, but if it had been different…)

They wouldn’t have had the accident if they hadn’t driven so fast. (They drove fast and they had the accident)

We make the third conditional by using the past perfect after ‘if’ and then ‘would have’ and the past participle in the second part of the sentence:

If + past perfect, …would + have + past participle

Examples:

  • If we had taken a taxi, we wouldn’t have missed the plane.
  • She wouldn’t have been tired if she had gone to bed earlier.
  • She would have become a teacher if she had gone to university.
  • I would have taken a photo if I had brought my camera with me.
  • He would have died if the ambulance hadn’t arrived quickly.
  • If I had had more money, I would have gone on the world trip with my friends.

Make sure you follow our *TT exercises to practice different types of conditional sentences. For the third conditional think about a situation it the past and try to imagine how it could have been different, for example, you missed the bus yesterday – If I had left the house earlier, I wouldn’t have missed the bus. You had too much too eat and you felt sick. If I hadn’t eaten so much, I wouldn’t have felt sick.
