Second Conditional Progressive

The second conditional progressive expresses an unfinished or continuing action or situation, which is the probable result of an unreal condition. This form is composed of two elements: the present conditional of the verb "to be" (would be) + the present participle of the main verb.

For example, "I would be working in Italy if I spoke Italian." But I don't speak Italian, so I'm not working in Italy. Or "She would be living with Jack if she weren't living with her parents." But she is living with her parents, so she's not living with Jack.

To form the negative, change would to wouldn't or would not. For example, "I wouldn't be eating this if I wasn't extremely hungry." But I am hungry, so I am eating this. Or "You wouldn't be smiling if you knew what happened." But you are smiling, so you don't know what happened.
