Hello omidabshenas,

We can use 'would' in either example:

He asked me if more people would download music in the future.

She asked if she would have to wear jeans at work.

Thanks a million Peter.....the examples are from ''English result"Intermediate level.... published by Oxford university it seems the sentence in the teacher's guide: 'she asked if she had to wear jeans at work is wrong'
Am I right?

Hello omidabshenas,

No, both sentences are grammatically correct - they just have different meanings. The one with 'had to wear' is about a present time (in the past), and the one with 'would have to wear' refers to a future time (from the perspective of the past).

This video is interesting because I always make mistakes when I speak future plans, can I practice this advice or improve my english speaking? Do you have any idea?
Thanks a lot.
Best regards.

Hello P_Moreno,

There's some advice on how to improve your speaking on our Help page, which I'd suggest you try. And if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask them.

Hello bulbulbigboss,

I'm afraid the videos cannot be downloaded for technical and legal reasons. They can, however, be accessed as often as you wish online.
