Reply to "Hypothetical sentence"

"What would you want to find out about a group of learners that you had to teach so that you could plan your lessons?" . . . What if 'had to teach' is interpreted as a real past tense?

Hi, DT—It wouldn't make sense to interpret the sentence that way; so, although it is possible to interpret it thus, it is unlikely that anybody ever would.
