BBC英语一分钟: ‘wish’的用法

How to use 'wish'

 ‘wish’的用法

Hi, everyone. Tom here, from BBC Learning English in London. And today, I'm going to tell you what to say after the word wish.

大家好,我是汤姆. 今天我教大家wish的用法。

When we're talking about wishes, we're talking about situations that are imaginary or unreal. To show this, after saying 'I wish', we use the past to talk about the wish, which is in the present.

愿望是对某种情况的想象或不真实的事情。为了说明这一点, 'I wish'之后通常跟过去式表示如今的某种心愿。

So, I could say: I wish I had a cup of tea. Ah, thank you!

所以,可以这么说:我想喝杯茶。啊,谢谢!

Now, if we want to make a wish about the past, we need to use the past past - or the past perfect.

如果我们想要表示对过去的某种心愿,需要用过去的过去——换句话说就是过去完成时。

For example: I wish I had chosen a more formal shirt before I filmed this video today.

例如:真希望今天拍这个视频之前能选一件更正式一点的衬衫。
