The main sentence of today is: If I were...
Se io fossi...where se means if and io, I, fossi-were.
BUT how do you say, If I were you? Well, in Italian it works slightly differently.
The Italians say: If I were IN you rather than If I were you.
Se io fossi IN te.
Fossi is the imperfect subjunctive, therefore 'sia' in its past tense.
The conjugation is as follows:
Se io fossi
Se tu fossi
Se lui/lei fosse
Se noi FOSsimo
Se voi foste
Se loro FOSSero
Se io fossi in te, andrei dal dottore. If I were you, I'd go to the doctor's.
Se lui fosse in me, vedrebbe il mondo come vedo io. If he were me, he'd see the world the way I do.
