    Por otro lado, lo correcto cuando se trata del subjuntivo es "were" en cada caso. Por ejemplo:

    If I were you... Si fuera usted... (aunque algunos nativos dicen "If I was you...)

    To be more clear, the Past Subjunctive of "to be" is:

    I were
    You were
    He/she/it were
    We were
    You were
    They were

    Examples:

    1) If I were in Paris I would eat a croissant.
    2) If I was in Paris, I would eat a croissant.

    1) If I were confused, she would help me.
    2) If I was confused, she would help me.

    1) If it were raining, we would be inside.
    2) If it was raining, we would be inside.

    1) If he were faster, he would play tennis.
    2) If he was faster, he would play tennis.

    In the examples 1 is correct in traditional English, but 2 is probably said more often.

    So both would be accepted as correct in current English.

    En los ejemplos, 1 es correcto en inglés tradicional, pero probablemente se dice 2 con más frecuencia.

    Entonces ambos serían aceptados como correctos en inglés actual.
