Hope Vocabulary

In this lesson, I show how I used the word hope in one of my videos, and then give more examples.

Watch in HD!

Share the video with your friends, and then read the article below…


In the example I gave, I said the following:

“…the weather is amazing and I hope it stays that way. Also, I hope that you have a wonderful weekend…”

I used hope because I wanted a certain thing to happen. I wanted the weather to stay nice, and I wanted those watching the video to have a wonderful weekend. Here are three more examples:

  • I hope you can make it next week”
  • “I hope that you have good weather.”
  • “I hope to finish this soon.”

In the first two examples, I was talking about someone else. The structure is: I hope + (that) + you have/can/do etc. Using that is optional in most cases.

In the last example, I was talking about myself, and the structure is: I hope + to finish/have/do etc in most cases. However, it does depend on the verb, for example, “I hope I can finish this later.”
