    I wish I were...

    Wish is a useful word that you can use to talk about hope in the present or future places.

    Use: subject + wish + were ( or  was)
    Example: I wish I were in Hawaii.
    Example: I wish I were an astronaut.

    Note: This is called the subjunctive form. We use it for formal English.

    In spoken English you may hear 'was' instead of 'were'.

    Example (informal): I wish English was easier.
    Example (formal): I wish English were easier.
