    Dear teachers.

    I'd like to know the difference between (1) and (2).

    (1), I wish there is no war.
    (2), I wish there were no war.

    Thank you in advance.

    The first is wrong. After wish, use a past tense to show that it is a wish and not the real situation.

    "I wish there was no war" would be wrong too.
