Regrets are difficult for students to talk about.
What’s a regret? It’s wishing you could change the past by doing an action you didn’t do or by not doing an action you did do.
You can express regrets by using the verb ‘regret’ in the following way.
- Using a gerund (‘~ing’ verb) and object:
- a negative gerund and an object:
- Using ‘that’ with a simple past-tense verb:
“I regret playing video games instead of studying during high school.”
“I regret not studying in high school.”
“I regret that I played games so much.”
“I regret that I didn’t study.”
