CONDITIONAL SENTENCES TYPE 3
 
REMEMBER!!!
We use this type of conditional to express past actions which we can't change anymore and often regret this.
It is formed by:
1. an IF-CLAUSE (the condition) + subject + PAST PERFECT (had + past participle)
2. a MAIN CLAUSE (the result) + subject + PERFECT CONDITIONAL (would have + past participle)
The negative is formed by adding "not" to the auxiliary verb!
