Student or Learner
I just like to know how to put the main verb in the correct form after wish to express the past which I regret now in the following sentence!
Alas! I couldn't go to Stratford last year.
Is it correct to say:
I wish I could have gone to Stratford last year
My teacher made it like this :
I wish I had been able to go to Stratford last year.
Now, my question : Is there any difference between my sentence and my teacher's, in terms of grammar and Semantics?
Heap of thanks!
Just a thought. I don't know how other people feel, but I am a little put off when I see posts laid out like your original post. I don't find them particularly easy to read, and therefore don't even bother sometimes. Perhaps I am just getting old.
