Hypothetical situations with Past Simple

6/21
Recursos

Hablar de situaciones imaginarias, situaciones opuestas a la realidad, hacer una observaci贸n sobre algo que est谩 sucediendo para expresar tus pensamientos o hacer comparaciones, son solo algunas de las situaciones en donde podr谩s hablar de forma hipot茅tica en el pasado.

Situaciones hipot茅ticas con pasado simple

Para hablar de forma hipot茅tica, puedes emplear el vocabulario 鈥渁s if鈥 o 鈥渁s though鈥, siendo el primero m谩s com煤n de utilizar. Ambas expresiones tienen significados muy similares y funcionan como conjunciones para conectar dos cl谩usulas y hablar de situaciones imaginarias.

Veamos algunos ejemplos:

  • It looked as though the gorilla was lost in thought.
  • He was sitting as if he had a grand plan.
  • She answered the question聽as if聽she practiced math a lot.
  • She was resting as though she finished all the work.

Expr茅sate con este vocabulario para hablar del pasado en una forma hipot茅tica, de hechos que no ocurrieron en realidad o comparar situaciones en las que aparentan ser otra cosa.

SUMMARY:
HYPOTHETICAL SITUATIONS with PAST SIMPLE. Similar SECOND and THIRD CONDITIONAL (other forms to express hypothetical situations).
Hypothetical situations are situations that are IMAGINARY or OPPOSITE to what REALLY happened in the past or something that will PROBABLY NEVER happen in the future.
AS IF / AS THOUGH (with PAST SIMPLE) are used to make comparisons and talk about hypothetical situations. There 's no regret. There鈥檚 no adding myself to the situation. This is just what I see and what comes to my mind when I see it. For example: It looked as though the gorilla was lost in thought.
AS IF is more common and informal than AS THOUGH. It isn鈥檛 recommended to replace AS IF or AS THOUGH for LIKE all time. Because LIKE is more informal than these two (informal conversation).
