    Just a note for English learners that the question should have read "I wish I could see you this weekend". ;)

    Hi, Mulmex! I think the problem is that Born Great can't see (presumably) her boyfriend! ;)

    Hi, Dandee! Oh dear - now I have to think about the grammatical content of something which I would just say without thinking! How often do we ever think about grammar in our mother tongue? Um ...

    It has to be 'I wish I could ...' and not 'I wish I can ...' because the verb in this context has to be in the conditional in English. In Spanish, of course, you would use the subjunctive (ojala quisiera, pudiera etc.). Thinking about it, you can never say 'I wish I can' - it will always be incorrect.
