A meeting point for you and me

If I were…

As I told you in class, I wanted to set an example of a song that contained a typical conditional sentence, but I finally changed my mind. I know I had suggested If I were a boy by Beyoncé, but I’ve finally changed my mind. Most of you have probably never heard this piece of music from the 60’s musical Fiddler on the roof, but when we are dealing with this grammar point, these are the lyrics that I keep on remembering: If I were a richman…

Now, what about your own suggestions? I’m sure you can think of other songs which have this kind of structure. However, if you can’t , you might want to share your ideas on the things you would like to do if you were a rich man or woman…

  5. If I were rich…
    I would buy a very big house with a very big garden, near the sea in a very sunny place. I would travel around the world, but first to Egypt and Greece. I would stop working and I would dedicate myself to writing books and stories. I would have spare time to learn foreign languages and to play instruments.

If I were a rich woman, the first thing, I’d retire my father so that he wouldn’t return to work, and I’d give money to all my family, my brothers, my sister-in-law my nephew and my niece, my parentes-in-law, my neighbours… all the people that need the money.

  9. If I were a rich girl I would buy a house near Bondy Beach in Australia because I would love to live there. I would buy a nice surfboard too and I would go there each summer to do surfing all day and to practise English too obviously.
