If you can remember, we studied about Conditional Sentences I, II and III before the Midterm. I’d like to refresh your memory by posting this great song by Beyonce, titled “If I Were a Boy” as an example of how the Second Conditional Sentence is used in real life context. Enjoy.
As you can see the Second Conditional is used here to present the situation that is UNREAL, or CONTRARY TO REALITY. In this example, the singer says that she would have freedom to do so many things, if she were a boy.
