State that we use “to wish” for things we want to come true in the future which haven’t come true yet. Ask the students which other word in the sentence is a verb; (was/wasn’t). Tell them that because this sentence is conditional, this verb is in the past simple. Ask the students to choose one sentence for each character and transfer the information from the first to the third person. If the students have never studied the conditional before, they can continue using the verb to be to write sentences about themselves. If they have studied it before they can use other verbs. E.g.

SYNOPSIS Kerry Dingleberry is a normal teenager who lives with her mum. At the beginning of the play Kerry is getting ready for school. But Kerry's mum, Mrs D, seems to be more interested in her magazine than helping Kerry to get to school on time. But then Mrs D is, well, a little bit crazy. She loves pop music, fashion and singing loudly. She hates doing the housework, cooking and being too serious. Kerry thinks her mum is very embarrassing. She can't even escape her at school because her mum is also her English teacher. Kerry hates having to go to English classes, because her mum is so silly as a teacher. In fact the only thing she likes about school is …Paul, the most popular boy in the class. Kerry wishes everything was different, she wishes her mum was more serious and that Paul was her boyfriend. Mrs Dingleberry wishes Kerry was more adventurous and exciting and that she would talk to Paul.
