Would

In the video Merlin said she would do anything to be at the Olympics.

"I would do anything to be there."

We use the word 'would' when we imagine an action or a situation.

e.g. I would love to live in the countryside.

We use 'would' when we imagine things in the present.

e.g. I would call Claire but my phone is broken.

We use 'would have' when we imagine things in the past.

e.g. I would have called Claire but my phone was broken.

'Would' is often used in sentences with 'if'.

e.g. I would visit Thomas if I knew where he lived.

Now complete the sentences with 'would' or 'would have'

1. I ___________ love to go to Australia on holiday, but I don't have enough money.

2. I ___________ bought that car, but it was too expensive.

3. We ___________ go to the park today, but the weather is too wet.

4. I ___________ gone to the cinema, if that new action film was showing.

'Bad' idioms

Below are some idioms using the word 'bad':

a bad egg: a person who behaves in a bad way

go from bad to worse: when a situation gets worse than it already is

take the bad with the good: accept the bad things and the

good things without complaining

show someone in a bad light: describe or show someone in a bad way

Now complete the sentences with the correct idiom. The form of the phrase may need to be changed.

1. Nothing is working today. The project has ______________.

2. In life good things happen and bad things happen. You really need to learn to

______________.

3. Don't go into business with her. She really is ______________ and you will regret it.
