CONDITIONAL FORMSEnglish learners should study conditional forms to speak about past,present and future situations that depend on other eventshappening. There are four forms of the conditional in English.Students should study each of the forms to understand how to useconditionals to speak about: Something that is always true if something happens - conditional zero Something that will be true in the future if something happens - conditional one or real conditional Something that would be true if something happened in the present - conditional two or unreal conditional Something that would have been true in the past if something had happened - conditional three or unreal conditionalConditional 0Situations that are always true if something happens.NOTEThis use is similar to, and can usually be replaced by, a time clauseusing when (example: When I am late, my father takes me toschool.)If I am late, my father takes me to school.She doesnt worry if Jack stays out after school.Conditional 0 is formed by the use of the present simple in the ifclause followed by a comma the present simple in the result clause.You can also put the result clause first without using a commabetween the clauses. If he comes to town, we have dinner. OR We have dinner if he comes to town.
Conditional 1Often called the "real" conditional because it is used for real - orpossible - situations. These situations take place if a certaincondition is met.NOTEIn the conditional 1 we often use unless which means if ... not. Inother words, ...unless he hurries up. could also be written, ...if hedoesnt hurry up.. If it rains, we will stay at home. He will arrive late unless he hurries up. Peter will buy a new car, if he gets his raise.Conditional 1 is formed by the use of the present simple in the ifclause followed by a comma will verb (base form) in the resultclause. You can also put the result clause first without using acomma between the clauses. If he finishes on time, we will go to the movies.OR We will go to the movies if he finishes on time.Conditional 2Often called the "unreal" conditional because it is used for unreal -impossible or improbable - situations. This conditional provides animaginary result for a given situation.NOTEThe verb to be, when used in the 2nd conditional, is alwaysconjugated as were. If he studied more, he would pass the exam.
I would lower taxes if I were the President. They would buy a new house if they had more money.Conditional 2 is formed by the use of the past simple in the if clausefollowed by a comma would verb (base form) in the result clause.You can also put the result clause first without using a commabetween the clauses. If they had more money, they would buy a new house.OR They would buy a new house if they had more money.Conditional 3Often referred to as the "past" conditional because it concerns onlypast situations with hypothetical results. Used to express ahypothetical result to a past given situation. If he had known that, he would have decided differently. Jane would have found a new job if she had stayed in Boston.Conditional 3 is formed by the use of the past perfect in the if clausefollowed by a comma would have past participle in the result clause.You can also put the result clause first without using a commabetween the clauses.If Alice had won the competition, life would have changed OR Lifewould have changed if Alice had won the competition.

THEN COMPLETE THE WORKBOOK WHOLE MODULE 3.2 PLEASE WRITE AN ARTICLE ABOUT THE ADVANTAGES ANDDISADVANTAGES OF WORKING IN TEAM IN THE UNIVERSITY. YOU CAN MENTION TOPICS ABOUT STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND AUTHORITIESWell, Im going to talk about the work we have done in ourUniversity, the activities that we have done are the “MINGAS”the advantages of working in team are many, because the workis concluded faster, and everyone can say, and that the work isbetter, many people work better in team, Another advantage isthat everyone we interact better work as partners and asfriends, and thats good because the U grows and gives a goodexample.Between the disadvantages of working in team, are that manypeople don´t work, and they let that others do the job, and Ithink that it is very bad, also I believe that team work is badbecause many people are absent from the workplace, and workperformance decreases.

WRITE AN ESSAY ABOUT TOPICS RELATED TO YOUR CARREROur career studying everything related to nature, whether animals orplants, I think the Agriculture today is one of the most important issuesbecause of agriculture depends on the supply for everyone, and it is ourresponsibility to make a good crop management, making goodmanagement consciousness without too much use of chemicals that aredetrimental to health.On the other hand, our career is related to the animals as these are whatwe also produce food by meat and by-products such as milk cows,chickens eggs etc.Between the bad things aboutagriculture is that many people whoare dedicated to grow the plants,today they are using too manychemicals, these people are notaware of the damage or arm they arecausing to the people who consumethis products and also to the arm tothe environment. The good of our race is that we as professionals future, we need to produce products that do not have too
many chemicals, and sell healthy and natural products that help peopleshealth.In conclusion, we as good people have to be responsible when producingproducts for human consumption.Our career is wonderful, because we are called to help conserver theenvironment, the rational use of chemicalsIf we as professionals we ensure good health of people, not make moneyregardless of health.
USE OF PASSIVE Passive voice is used when the focus is on the action. It is not important or not known; however, who or what is performing the action. Example: My bike was stolen. In the example above, the focus is on the fact that my bike was stolen. I do not know, however, who did it. Sometimes a statement in passive is more polite than active voice, as the following example shows: Example: A mistake was made. In this case, I focus on the fact that a mistake was made, but I do not blame anyone (e.g. you have made a mistake.). Form of Passive Subject + finite form of to be + Past Participle (3rd column of irregular verbs) Example: A letter was written. When rewriting active sentences in passive voice, note the following: the object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence the finite form of the verb is changed (to be + past participle) the subject of the active sentence becomes the object of the passive sentence (or is dropped) Examples of Passive Tense Subject Verb Object writes aletter. Simple Active: Rita Present Passive: A letter iswritten by Rita. Simple Past Active: Rita wrote aletter. Passive: A letter waswritten by Rita. PresentPerfect Active: Rita has written aletter. Passive: A letter has beenwritten by Rita. Future I Active: Rita willwrite aletter.
Passive: A letter will be written by Rita. Hilfsverben Active: Rita can write aletter. Passive: A letter can be written by Rita.Examples of Passive Tense Subject Verb Object iswriting aletter. PresentProgressive Active: Rita Passive: A letter isbeingwritten by Rita. PastProgressive Active: Rita waswriting aletter. Passive: A letter wasbeingwritten by Rita. PastPerfect Active: Rita hadwritten aletter. Passive: A letter hadbeenwritten by Rita. Future II Active: Rita willhavewritten aletter. Passive: A letter willhavebeenwritten by Rita. Conditional I Active: Rita wouldwrite aletter. Passive: A letter would be written by Rita. Conditional II Active: Rita wouldhavewritten aletter. Passive: A letter wouldhavebeenwritten by Rita.Passive Sentences with Two ObjectsRewriting an active sentence with two objects in passive voice means that one of thetwo objects becomes the subject, the other one remains an object. Which object totransform into a subject depends on what you want to put the focus on. Subject Verb Object 1 Object 2 wrote a letter to me. Active: Rita
Passive: A letter waswritten to me by Rita. Passive: I waswritten a letter by Rita. . As you can see in the examples, adding by Rita does not sound very elegant. That’s why it is usually dropped. Personal and Impersonal Passive Personal Passive simply means that the object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence. So every verb that needs an object (transitive verb) can form a personal passive. Example: They build houses. – Houses are built. Verbs without an object (intransitive verb) normally cannot form a personal passive sentence (as there is no object that can become the subject of the passive sentence). If you want to use an intransitive verb in passive voice, you need an impersonal construction – therefore this passive is called Impersonal Passive. Example: he says – it is said Impersonal Passive is not as common in English as in some other languages (e.g. German, Latin). In English, Impersonal Passive is only possible with verbs of perception (e. g. say, think, know). Example: They say that women live longer than men. – It is said that women live longer than men. Although Impersonal Passive is possible here, Personal Passive is more common. Example: They say that women live longer than men. – Women are said to live longer than men. The subject of the subordinate clause (women) goes to the beginning of the sentence; the verb of perception is put into passive voice. The rest of the sentence is added using an infinitive construction with to (certain auxiliary verbs and that are dropped). Sometimes the term Personal Passive is used in English lessons if the indirect object of an active sentence is to become the subject of the passive sentence.

3. The shoes are bought.4. The car is washed.5. The litter is thrown away.6. The letter is sent.7. The book is not read.8. The songs are not sung.9. The food is not eaten.

In summer, more ice-cream is eaten than in winter.4. She calls her grandparents every Friday.5. The letters are typed.6. He takes his medicine every day.7.
