Would you please correct my exercise ?
Put the bracketed words in the right tense and form:
Well this time next week, you will be somewhere in Europe. I’m sure any mum would worry. Actually you’re very lucky. I’d love to be able to go off around the world. I often wish I (1. travel) ………… had travelled more when I was younger. I really hope you (2. enjoy) …. will enjoy yourself, but do be careful! You’re only 18 after all. Do take care with your money. And I’d rather you (3. not + spend) …… didn’t spend too many nights in your tent alone. It’s so dangerous. I wish you (4. go + not) ……… wouldn’t go so soon. It’s a pity you (5. modal + not + stay)……. can’t stay until after Dad’s 59th birthday. But never mind. I wish Dad (6. be able) …… were able to see you off at the airport, but he’s got some really important business the day of your departure.
Suppose we (7. be) ……. were out to see you in June?!! Just a thought. Anyway, just remember, if you get into any trouble, we’re only a phone call away!
Thank you very much in advance,
4- I wish you weren't going
7- your answer makes sense with the verb given, but 'came' would be my choice.
