Second conditional• We use the second conditional to talk about imaginary situations and their consequences: If he studied harder, he would pass his exams. She would travel around the world if she won the lottery. What would you do if you found a lot of money?
Second conditional• To form sentences we use: If + subject + verb in past simple for the situation, subject + would/wouldn’t + infinitive without to for the consequence.• If the situation goes first, we write a comma: If she had a dog, she would feel safe.• If the consequence goes first, we don’t write a comma: I would play football if I didn’t have classes today.• Would can be contracted to ’d: If she had a dog, she’d feel safe.
