### CONDITIONAL SENTENCES (RULES AND EXERCISES)

1. 1. Object 1Object 2
2. 2. CONDITIONAL SENTENCES ATC-IBARRA CONDITIONAL SENTENCESWe have 4 conditional cases: zero conditional First conditional Second conditional and Third conditional Zero conditional2
3. 3. CONDITIONAL SENTENCES ATC-IBARRA GRAMMAR RULES WITH EXAMPLESThere are four basic types of conditional sentences in the English language.Examples:The zero conditional: I take my umbrella if it rains.The first conditional: Ill call you if I work late.The second conditional: If the bus didnt arrive on time, I would drive you to theairport.The third conditional: She wouldnt have come if I hadnt invited her.  The zero conditionalThe zero conditional describes situations that are always true. If has thesame meaning as when or whenever.Example:If I go to school, I get up at seven. (Whenever I go to school I get up at thesame time.)If you park your car on double yellow lines, you pay a fine. (Whenever youpark illegally, you pay a fine.)We use the present simple tense in both the main clauses and the ifclauses.  The first conditionalThe first conditional sentences are usedto speculate about possible situations thatcan really happen at present or in future.We do not use will in an if clause todescribe future activities (compare it to time clauses).Examples:If he studies hard, hell pass the exams. If we catch the 10.15 train, we will arrive on time. If you dont get the ticket, what will you do?3
