Conditional Perfect is the one hundredth (assuming left to right) skill in the German language tree. In the two lessons of this skill, the student of German learns how to describe the conditional in terms of the past tense with a tense called the conditional perfect.
There are no new vocabulary words in this skill.
The conditional perfect uses the past subjunctives of sein or haben (wären and hätten, respectively) and the past participle to create a conditional in the past tense. In English, this is translated as "would have done..." These two verbs need to be conjugated. They are conjugated similar to the preterites:
|er, sie, es||wäre||hätte|
Remember, all verbs past the first will go to the end of the sentence.
hätten is first used in this lesson.
wären is introduced.
