Issue related to If and the second conditioal Dear friends, I dont remind if this is either my first or second time I write requesting help with an issue related to English. If it is the second opportunity asking for some kind of assistance, I thank all of those who kindly answered to me. Today's question has connection with the second conditional and the doubt appeared when i was trying to write a sentence answering a teacher request on other website. The sentence is the following: " I would be love to know if you have had some prior experience with Spanish". I answered my student's request but i was not sure about about the correct tense in the second clause. Should have i had to use "Have" instead of "Have had" ? Thank you for your suggestions. Guillermo

It should be "I would love to know if you've had any prior experience with Spanish" In regards to using "have had" versus "have", in this context both are fine.
