Last friday, l learned about 'I wish'. 'I wish' means it is impossible wish. (Sunny's correction is the easiest explanation I think.)
I wish is also used in regards to something being aggrivating or annoying. For example "I really wish you would stop tapping your pencil on the desk. It is driving me crazy!" or "I really wish you wouldn't do that." For example I wish i were rich.( wish for present time) =If only i were rich. I wish i had done my homework.(wish for past time) =If only i had done my homework. My wish I wish i were tall. Many people told me you that I look so young, because i am short. And I wish i had studied hard in high school. if i had studied hard at that time i could have gotten a better job. (This sounds more natural to me.) I wish I had sisters or brothers that could hang out and share our concerns together. Which country do you wish you had been born in? I wish i had been born in a Nordic Countries like Finland, Sweden and Norway. The reason why is because those countries are chosen as the best countries to live in from magazines and news. They provide good healthy care systems, stable business and high quality education to nation. I used to work hard working in Korea. It was stressful after i got a job and i didn`t have any time for me to have a hobby. Now and then i wanted do something but i didn`t know what i should do during my down time (down time = rest time) for rest time. I used to watch TV rather than having a hobby. It was waste of my time, so i wanna find a hobby.
Good job. I understood everything you said. When I correct things, I don't really try to button down where mistakes in grammar as much as I just try to make things sound natural. My corrections may not be as good as others, but they relate to how someone naturally speaks. Native english speakers have quite a bit of difference in how they may or may not express an idea. So if it is confusing or unnatural to some, it may be natural to others. As long you can be understood you are being successful!
