I would like to know the difference between the following two sentences:
- If I had money, I would have gone to the USA.
- If I had money, I would go to the USA.
Which of the above two would you classify as the second conditional sentence?
The second one is the second conditional sentence, because it uses would+infinitive.
The difference between the sentences is that the first sentence is indicates that you if you had had money in the past (for example last year), you would have gone to the USA last year. The second one indicates that if you had money right now, you would go to the USA right no.
