    Smile How can I express the subjunctive mood with the help of the verb would?

    I am from Russia, and I would like to ask a native speaker about the way of expression the subjunctive mood. I have a sentence "We would remit money but all banks are closed this period" is it a correct way to say that we would remit the money if the banks were open?
    Thanks in advance

    Conditional sense
    Ex: We would remit the money (if we could / if the banks were open), but all banks are closed this period.
