125925 Cersei Lannister : I have never studied that and I feel so embarrassed
125926 super : In Greece it is normal to break plates in the restaurant.
125927 Ric : mixed conditionals?
125928 super : Aparently there are over 30 conditionals
125929 Ric : sometimes I can't remember things by their names
125930 Cersei Lannister : Yes, mixed conditionals
125931 super : So give us an example
125932 Ric : I just looked it up
125933 Ric : well I'm not sure if that's even frequent
125934 super : When I was in Greece people would break plates but also clocks and watches
125935 super : Plus everyone would throw plates at the rats when they ran past.
125936 Cersei Lannister : If I had worked harder at school, I would have a better job now.
125937 Ric : yes, I've just looked it up
125938 super : That's the second conditional
125939 Cersei Lannister : Second conditional is if+past simple not past perfect
125940 Ric : it should have been followed by "I would have had a better job"
125941 Cersei Lannister : Yes but that's how it is written according to the mixed conditionals thing
125942 Ric : yes, but that's probably poor grammar amongst native speakers
125943 Ric : as it happens to us in Spanish
125944 Cersei Lannister : The point is the person who told me about this was someone who studied the mixed conditionals to pass the B2 official exam
125945 super : Si hubiera trabajado mas en el colegio tendria un empleo mejor ahora
125946 Cersei Lannister : Esa es la traducción si
125947 Cersei Lannister : Pero la frase en inglés es una mezcla del segundo y el tercer condicional
125948 Cersei Lannister : Yo no he estudiado esa estructura nunca, ni siquiera cuando estudiaba filología
125949 super : Hay montones de condicionales. Si tiene sentido no pasa nada.
125950 super : No hay libros de gramatica que incluye todo.
125951 Cersei Lannister : Nosotros solo estudiamos el 0, el 1, el 2 y el 3
125952 Cersei Lannister : Tengo que investigar esto a fondo
125953 Ric : quizás es porque no es gramaticamente correcto
125954 Ric : a pesar de que haya gente que los mezcle
125955 Cersei Lannister : Si no lo fuera, no lo enseñarían en Pearson
125956 super : La frase que has dicho es correcto.
125957 Ric : lo que pasa con el "How's things"
125958 Ric : no es correcto, pero todo el mundo lo usa
