    My question is: What is the difference between "hope" and "wish", and when and where can we use it them? and where can we use it?

    thankful Thank you.
    Welcome to the forum.

    First, see my corrections above. It is important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.

    Have you looked up both words in a good dictionary? Have you discovered the website fraze.it yet? It's really helpful. It gives you examples of how to use words and phrases.

    Lots of learners have problems with these two words because they have similar meanings but are used differently.

    I wish I could fly.
    I wish you wouldn't do that.
    She wishes her husband would come home.

    I hope you have a good holiday.
    She hopes to win the lottery one day.
    They hope the cat is found soon.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please note that I have changed your thread title. 'question' isn't good enough.
