Hope vs. Wish
We use hope when something is possible or likely to happen:
- I hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow.
- I hope the train is on time.
- I hope I can see you when I visit Tokyo.
We use wish when something is not possible or not likely to happen.
- I wish I were taller!
- I wish you didn’t live so far away.
- I wish I could fly.
How about you? What do you hope? What do you wish?
