### Transcript

• 1. Zero, First, Second and Third Conditionals
• 2. Zero conditional &#xF075; Use &#x2013; to talk about general truths E.g. If you have a brother or sister, you are not an only child. Note: You are not an only child if you have a brother or sister. &#xF075; Structure: If + present simple, present simple
• 3. First conditional &#xF075; Use &#x2013; to talk about possible or likely situations now or in the future E.g. If it rains tomorrow, we&#x2019;ll stay at home. &#xF075; Structure: If + present tenses (simple, continuous and perfect) + will + b.i.
• 4. &#xF075; It is possible to use other modals instead of will: If you finish the test early, you can go home. If you work hard, you should pass the exam. If I am tired, I may/ might decide not to go to the party.
• 5. Second conditional &#xF075; Use &#x2013; to talk about impossible or unlikely situations now or in the future E.g. If I found a wallet on the street, I would take it to the police station. If I didn&#x2019;t go to the party, I&#x2019;d be upset. &#xF075; Structure: If + past simple or continuous + would + b.i.
• 6. &#xF075; It is possible to use other modals instead of would: I am not tired. If I went to bed now, I couldn&#x2019;t sleep. If I lived on my own, I might decide to get a dog. In conditional sentences you can use WERE for all the subject pronouns: If I were rich, I would buy a big house.
• 7. Third conditional &#xF075; Use &#x2013; to talk about hypothetical situations in the past E.g. I decided to stay at home last night. I would have gone out if I hadn&#x2019;t been so tired. I wasn&#x2019;t hungry. If I had been hungry, I would have eaten something. If he had been looking where he was going, he wouldn&#x2019;t have walked into the wall. &#xF075; Structure: If + past perfect simple or continuous + would have + p. p.
• 8. UNLESS We can also use UNLESS in conditional sentences. UNLESS can replace IF ... NOT: If we don&#x2019;t score another goal, we will lose. (1st Cond.) UNLESS we score another goal, we will lose. I couldn&#x2019;t watch the match if I didn&#x2019;t have a TV. (2nd Cond.) I couldn&#x2019;t watch the match UNLESS I had a TV. If she hadn&#x2019;t been such a good player, she wouldn&#x2019;t have won the game. (3rd Cond.) UNLESS she had been such a good player, she wouldn&#x2019;t have won the game.
