Wish And Hope
>WISH
The word wish is usually used for hypothetical

(imagined) situations, when you want something in the present or past to be different.
When you’re wishing a present situation was different, use wish + simple past:
* I live near the beach, but I wish I lived near the mountains.
* Getting a visa to travel to the U.S. is difficult. I wish the process wasn’t so complicated.
When you’re wishing a past situation was different, use wish + past perfect:
* I wasn’t expecting your visit. I wish you had called me first.
* Yesterday I got very angry at my best friend. I wish I hadn’t said she was stupid.

>HOPE
The word hope is used when you want a specific result, and when there is (or was) a real possibility of getting that result.
When you are hoping for a result in the future, you can use either hope + present or hope + will + verb (they are equal; there is no difference):
* I bought a present for my girlfriend.
* I hope she likes it.
* OR I hope she’ll like it.
* My final English exam is this Friday.
* I hope I get a good grade.
* OR I hope I’ll get a good grade.
You can also use hope in the past continuous, past perfect, or past perfect continuous, when you wanted a result, but that result didn’t happen:
* I was hoping my girlfriend would like the present I bought her, but she hated it.
* I had hoped to get a good grade on my English exam, but I failed.

    What about when we make a wish, which one shall we use? For example, when we heard someone is sick, can we say 'I wish you well/ I hope you get better soon'?
