In this lesson, you can learn how to use would have, should have and could have. Did you learn anything new in this lesson? Let us know in the comments!
These verbs—would, should, could, etc.—are modal verbs, so they don’t have past forms like normal verbs do. Instead, you can talk about the past by adding have plus a past participle after the verb.
In this class, you’ll learn how to use these modal verbs to talk about the past in English, what they mean, and how they’re different. Keep practicing after you watch and try a class with an OOE teacher today: http://bit.ly/ooe-teachers.
