Third Conditional

We can use the Third Conditional to talk about 'impossible' conditions, impossible because they are in the past and we cannot change what has happened.

Notice that the main clause can contain 'would' 'could' or 'might.

Also notice that sometimes the 'if clause' is implied rather than spoken.
