Transcript

  • 1.  There are several structures in English that are called conditionals. "Condition" means "situation or circumstance". If a particular condition is true, then a particular result happens. In this lesson, we will look at the three basic conditionals as well as the so-called zero conditional. Well finish with a quiz to check your understanding.
  • 2.  We are talking about the future. We are thinking about a particular condition or situation in the future, and the result of this condition. There is a real possibility that this condition will happen. IF condition result present simple WILL + base verb I will stay at If it rains home. The important thing about the first conditional is that there is a real possibility that the condition will happen. IF condition result present simple WILL + base verb If I see Mary I will tell her. If Tara is free tomorrow he will invite her.
  • 3.  In the second conditional we are still thinking about the future, but there is not a real possibility that this condition will happen.IF Condition Result past simple WOULD + base verbIf I won the lottery I would buy a car. We use the past simple tense to talk about the future condition. We use WOULD + base verb to talk about the future result. The important thing about the second conditional is that there is an unreal possibility that the condition will happenIF condition result past simple WOULD + base verbIf I married Mary I would be happy. would you beIf it snowed next July surprised?
  • 4.  With the third conditional we talk about a condition in the past that did not happen. That is why there is no possibility for this condition. The third conditional is also like a dream, but with no possibility of the dream coming true.IF condition result WOULD HAVE + past past perfect participleIf I had seen Mary I would have told her.  We use the past perfect tense to talk about the impossible past condition. We use WOULD HAVE + past participle to talk about the impossible past result. The important thing about the third conditional is that both the condition and result are impossible now. IF condition result past perfect WOULD HAVE + past participle If Tara had been free yesterday I would have invited her. If it had rained yesterday would you have stayed at home?
  • 5.  We use the so-called zero conditional when the result of the condition is always true, like a scientific fact.IF condition result present simple present simpleIf you heat ice it melts. The result of the condition is an absolute certainty. We use the present simple tense to talk about the condition. We also use the present simple tense to talk about the result. The important thing about the zero conditional is that the condition always has the same result.IF condition result present simple present simpleIf I miss the 8 oclock bus I am late for work.If I am late for work my boss gets angry.
