    • CONDITIONALS
    • ZERO CONDITIONAL
      • A zero conditional sentence consists of two clauses, an if clause and a main clause.
      • If you heat water to 100 degrees, it boils.
      • Note that most of the zero conditional sentences will mean the same thing if “when” is used instead of “if”
      • You succeed when you work hard .
    • Activity Put the words in order to form zero conditional sentences There is more than one possible option.

      • Answers:
      • If my daughter eats too much chocolate, she gets sick. If she eats too much chocolate, my daughter gets sick. My daughter gets sick if she eats too much chocolate.

      • Answers:

      • If you drop it in water, ice floats.
    • FIRST CONDITIONAL
      • The first conditional is a structure used for talking about possibilities in the present or in the future.
      • It is composed by two parts:
      • One that expresses the condition, IF + SIMPLE PRESENT
      • One that expresses the RESULT
      • If you work hard, you will succeed
      • First Conditional sentences are used for actions which are true or likely to happen.
    • Activity Complete the following sentences
      • 1. If I (see) ______ him, I (give) ______ him a lift.
      • 2. I (give) ______ him £10 if he (give) ______ me a lift.
      • 3. If you (not go) ______ away, I (call) ______ the police.
      • 4. You (be) ______ late if you (not hurry up)______
      • 5. If he (not leave) ______ immediately, he (miss) ______ the train.
    • CHECK YOUR ANSWERS:
      • 1. If I (see) SEE him, I (give) WILL GIVE him a lift.
      • 2. I (give) WILL GIVE him £10 if he (give) GIVES me a lift.
      • 3. If you (not go) DON´T GO away, I (call) WILL CALL the police.
      • 4. You (be) WILL BE late if you (not hurry up) DON´T HURRY UP
      • 5. If he (not leave) DOES NOT LEAVE immediately, he (miss) WILL MISS the train.
    • SECOND CONDITIONAL
      • Second conditional sentences are u sed for present or future activities which are improbable or unlikely to happen.
      • If grandma had wheels, she would be a bicycle.
      • The IF clause is either hypothetical or unlikely to happen.
      • If I won the lottery (I will probably never win the lottery), I wouldn´t stop working.
      • Note that after the IF clause, we use the SIMPLE PAST.
      • We can use WOULD, COULD OR MIGHT.
      • Note:
      • In the conditional clauses “were” is sometimes used instead of “was” especially after “ I ”.
      • Example :
      • If I were as big as you, I’d be happy.
      • If I were you, I’d buy this dress.
    • ACTIVITY Complete the following sentences with your own ideas
      • If I were a bird…
      • If I could speak perfect English…
      • If I were the richest person in the world…
      • If I could be invisible…
      • If aliens landed on earth…
      • If I could change sex for a day…
      • If I could go to the moon…
      • If I had magic powers…
    • THIRD CONDITIONAL
      • We use the 3rd conditional to talk about a situation in the past that DIDN’T HAPPEN ,
      • always IMAGINARY
      • If + subject + past perfect, subject + would + present perfect
      • The third conditional is for “past if”, something that cannot be changed.
      • If I had worked harder, I would have succeeded
