虚拟语气用在would rather，would（just）as soon，would sooner，would prefer（希望）等后接的宾语从句中。意指某人宁愿让另一个人做某事，其后的宾语从句的谓语动词需用虚拟语气。若表示现在或将来要做某事，从句谓语动词需用一般过去时，表示过去已经做的事，从句谓语动词用过去完成时。虚拟语气可大致分为三类：一、 对现在事实的虚拟基本形式：If+were/did等过去
式…, …would /could /should /might + do 例如：If I were a fish, I would swimin the sea. (I’m not a fish, so I will not swimin the sea.)If she knew who am I, she would go out of joy. (She doesn’t know, so she still feels joyous.)I would certainly go if I had the time. How nice it would be if you could stay a bit longer.二、对过去事实的虚拟基本形式：If + had done…, …would /could / should /might +
例如：If she had been warned earlier, she wouldn’t
have broken the window. (She was not warned earlier andshe broke the
window.) If it hadn’t winded, the match would have seemedmore interesting. (It winded and the match was less interesting.)She would have come if we had invited her. 三、 对未来事实的虚拟
If + should do…, …would /could /should /might + do; were+to+v（可能性极小）,意思相当于汉语中的“万一”例如：If he should forget the date, I might teach him a good lesson. (事实上他不大可能忘记那个日期) If it should snow this afternoon, we could make a snowman. (事实上不大可能会下雪) 这种虚拟可倒装，如：
Should my car fail, I would have to return homeon foot.
= If my car should fail, I would have to return
home on foot. 如果条件从句中包含有were,had,should或could，有时可把if省略掉，但这时要把were,had,should或could放在主语前面（这种结构在口语中较少使用）。例如：(1)Had we made (= If we had made ) adequate
preparations, we might have succeeded. (2)Were there no gravity, there would be no air
around us. (3)Should it rain tomorrow, the meeting would
be put off.

Reading and Writing
History of painting
In ancient Greece and medieval Europe most buildings and sculptures were painted; nearly all of the ancient decoration has been lost, but some works from Egypt have preserved their coloring and give us an insight into the importance such an art can assume. The art of painting in China was linked from the 1st cent. A.D. with the
development of the Buddhist faith. Early Christian and then Byzantine artists established iconographic and stylistic prototypes in wall painting and manuscript illumination that remained the basis for Christian art.
Painting has had a long and glorious world history as an independent art. From Giotto to Picasso and from Ma Yüan to Hokusai, painting has never ceased to produce great exponents
who have expressed not merely the taste but the aspirations, the concepts of space, form, and color, and the philosophy of their respective periods.
In order to make your school more attractive, it is very interesting to hang some pictures on the wall in the classroom. Now write a letter to the headmaster and ask for permission by giving your suggestions and reasons.

注：①若某人愿自己做某事， would rather后用动词原形。
