......Hi,i hate to ask this question again but since nobody replied to my post last time,im giving it another shot.
i've had this problem for sometime now ,could anyone please help me?
look,i know that 'would' is used as the past form of will,
i've interpreted from movies that would may also be used instead of will if the result is impossible or if the action/state wont happen like:
i would never go there.
why would i do that?
1st question:is this correct?
- If he were an actor, he would be in adventure movies. conditional
- I knew that she would be very successful in her career. past of "will"
ENGLISH PAGE - Would
2nd:should i use 'will' only for the actions that will happen in future?or can i use would too?
The second conditional uses would and is often thought to exhibit a future (although mostly hugely improbable) reference, but you would use Will to express predictions, calculations and on the spot decisions; in other words, you would use will to speak about things which have a much stronger basis in reality.
Put simply, something that will happen is probably going to occur, whereas something that would happen is probably subject to a condition and could very well not happen. It is a matter of context, but these guidelines apply to a lot of examples.
3rd:should i use would in all questions?
4th:can i use would for polite requests too?
Yes, we use would instead of will because it is considered more polite: it seems less direct.
Many thanks in advance.
