We use Third Conditional when:
● We talk about things that did NOT happen.
● Often used to express past consequences of unrealistic situations.
Let’s look at this example:
● If he had taken a taxi, he would have arrived on time for his flight.
Note that: he did not take the taxi, he did not arrive on time for his flight, and he probably regret the situation.
if + past perfect (had + past participle)
● If you had studied harder, you would have received better scores.
● If you had driven slower, you would have avoided the accident.
● If we had booked a table, we would not have waited so long.
● He would have made a better website if he had spent more time checking his code.
If you had remembered the charger, you would have attended the workshop.
From the worksheet
● Hey buddy, if you had not played the videos without taking notes, you would have approved that exam.
● I would have arrived on time for the interview if I had put the keys on the center table.
● If I had taken a look at the weather predictions, I will have carried the umbrella, now I’m going to get wet.
● If you had quit that addiction, I will have lent that money to you, but I have no confidence in you.
● You would have landed on time for the interview if you had taken that Uber despite the high bill during the rush hour.
