[ワンポイント] If only Yoshi would stop talking about his bike...
I hope everyone is having a great week so far! We will release a brand new episode tomorrow at 10:00am. I think it will be a good one! But for now, let's take a look at another “One-point English” lesson(日本語の説明付き！), from Dave (デイブ). If you want more, please check out his website! He posts something new everyday.
皆さんは「If only...」って聞いたことありますか？「If only...」は「I wish...」より必死な言い方です。「I wish...」は可能性が低いことを望んでいる時に言いますよね。例えば「I wish it would stop raining.」：雨が止んだらいい。
「If only my dog would come home.」
A: If only I could find a new job...
B: Don' stress it. I'm sure you'll find something soon.
Ａ: I really hate our boss.
Ｂ: Yeah, if only he'd retire...
Ａ: If only I could meet him one more time...
Ｂ: You should just forget about him and move on.
