If I won a lot of money, I'd buy a big house in the country.
I wouldn't worry if I were you.

Struktura rečenice je najčešće: if + past simple >> + would + infinitive.

Kada posle if dolazi glagol be, gramatički je ispravno da se kaže if I wereif he wereif she wereif it were. Međutim, često se čuje i koristi was, naročito posle he/she.
