G'day and welcome to a very special episode. In fact, this is the last time our team will be in Argentina. After nearly 5 years of living in Buenos Aires, and two years of pandemic, I can finally return home.
So this is the perfect opportunity to talk about one of the most complex ideas in language - the unreal (hypothetical) past.
