WOULD and WERE are words into the more common structures that are used to give advice or to ask advice (but they aren鈥檛 the only ones, we can use SHOULD too).

  • For example:
    Question: what would you do if you were me?
    Advice: I would read more books if I were you.

We use WERE with the personal pronoun I, in the affirmative example, because we are using this sentence as a hypothetical situation (we are not talking about the past).
And the word WERE is used for all the personal pronouns when we are talking about the hypothetical situation.

  • For instance:
    A need: I feel under the weather (I feel a little sick).
    A advice: I would go to the doctor if I were you.
  • Would / were

I would read more books if I were you
We use were with the pronoun I because in this sentence we鈥檙e talking about hypothetical situation

We are using the second conditional to ask for advice

Form: If + pas simple, would + simple verb
