    Default Please, proofread several sentences.

    1-If you changed into the suit, we could go to the restaurant
    2- If we are hungry we would go to the canteen
    3- If the waitress didnít see us, we would have to wait for some time.
    4- If I knew what had been there in your fridge, I could tell what to buy.
    5- If that girl had a good taste, she would always be well-dressed.

    1.2-I wish I could help them
    2.2-I wish the guests were sorry they had made so much noise that the police came
    3.2-I wish you could have tasted my cake, it was delicious.
    4.2-I wish you were with us.

    If we reserved a table in the coffee shop yesterday, we would not have to wait so long now.
    If you will have a free time after your work, drop into a fish store and buy some shrimps.

    I don't know if a "fish" store would sell shrimp. In Canada we call it a seafood store.
