1.) The professor said it wasn't used much in English, but had a hard time coming up with examples. She came up with one; "If I were a king, I would...." Can you give me other examples of it in English because I don't really think I will be telling people what I would do if I were a king any time soon?
2.) In order for it to be used so much in Spanish but not so much in English, how do I determine when to use it in Spanish when I wouldn't in English? There must be a difference that I'm just not seeing or that's just not registering for me.
