We go back to basic Spanish vocabulary for this post. We will have a look at the names of some countries in Spanish and their corresponding nationalities. Most Spanish-speaking countries have similar names in both languages, but a lot of, for instance, European names change considerably from English.
Watch the video and learn how to say some countries and nationalities before you do the exercise provided below. We encourage you to keep on studying this vocabulary beyond what you learn here today.

In this last part of the topic about conditionals, we will talk about the third type, which we use to describe situations in the past. It is present when we make complaints and express regrets, as well as telling someone off.
To build the sentence we use the "pluscuamperfecto del subjuntivo" which in English would be the past perfect. The second clause that does not carry the condition, can refer to a present situation (e.g. iria, estudiaria, comeria) or a past one (e.g. hubiera ido, hubiera estudiado, hubiera comido).
Have a look at the video for a more detailed explanation on this strcuture and then practice with the exercises provided below.

Continuing with our blog on conditional sentences, this week we will have a look at the unreal or impossible present conditional. We use this structure for situations that are not possible at the time of speaking (e.g. If I were rich= Si yo fuera rico). The form of verb used is the imperfect subjunctive e.g. Fuera, supiera, viviera, estudiara, etc.
Have a look at the video for more possible uses for this structure, then you can practise it with the exercises link below.
