" I felt if I would go back to the country, I would die or maybe to" why this sentence is made like that? but not as 3thd conditional: if past perfect..., would have V3.

Hello Alexey Alexey,

Many of our texts are authentic, which means that they are the words of real people speaking as they speak. Some of them are not native speakers of English and this is true of Alain. His sentence is not correct grammatically.

The examples we provide on our pages in the language summaries are accurate and represent good models, as does the language in our native-speaker texts. The language in some of the texts where a non-native speaker is speaking is not alway perfectly grammatical, however, as this is how real people speak and we consider it important to show authentic language as you might meet it outside of the classroom.

 

Best wishes,

Peter
