Homework 'I wish..' - 200421338 Yi Yung-eun

Post by Yi Yung-eun »

I wish I could play the drum well.
I'm a beginner in drum.
But I should play the drum on-stage at december 7th.
I wish I had been a bird.
bird is free better than me at least to my eyes.
And I hanker for freedom.

I wish I could play the drums well.
We usually refer to the drums using the plural (probably meaning a drum set or a few different kinds of drums), unless you're being specific about what kind of drum. Check this out.
I wish I could play the snare drum well.
Then you're fine using the singular. 8)
