Conditional Perfect  

Conditional Perfect

The conditional perfect is used to make statements that are contrary to reality. Something would, or would not, have happened if some condition had been met. As an example, “I would have done the assingment last night, if I had only taken my notebook with me to the party."

The conditional perfect can also be used to express probability or conjecture about the completion of an action prior to some point in the past:

  • El habría sacado la gorda antes de comprar aquella mansion.
    He would have won the lottery before purchasing that mansion.
  • El profesor le habría prometido una marca perfecta cuando empezó el curso.
    The professor must have promised him an A plus when he started the course.
