REGRETS (LOW B2)

REGRET: “to feel sorrow or remorse for (an act, fault, event, etc.)

THIS IS WHAT I PUBLISHED LAST YEAR…..

“IF I HADN´T SPENT SO MUCH PUBLIC MONEY, THERE WOULDN´T HAVE BEEN ANY LEAKS AT ALL”

THE THIRD CONDITIONAL CAN BE USED TO EXPRESS REGRETS.

THIS IS WHAT HAS JUST BEEN PUBLISHED THIS WEEK…

“A judge in Valencia has asked the Supreme to investigate Barberá for money laundering.”

“IF SHE HADN´T DONATED MONEY TO HER POLITICAL PARTY, SHE WOULDN´T BE UNDER INVESTIGATION NOW”

THIS IS A MIXED CONDITIONAL.

  1. I think we can express regret with if only + past perfect
    “Now people don’t trust me. If only I hadn’t bought such expensive handbags”

  2. If some politicians hadn’t spent so much public money, there would be the second EOI in Valencia… 😦
