The second conditional

The second conditonal is used to talk about impossible situations or unlikely situations.
Second conditional is formed using past simple in the if-clause, and would/could + base form.
Second conditional after I / he/ she /it often use indifferently the subjunctive form were and was (but some people think were is the only form correct).
