Conditional


Lesson


1st Conditional:

We use the 1st conditional to talk about something in the future which will probably happen in certain situations.


We form it like this:

If + present simple + will/won't + infinitive


Examples:


If you leave at 2.00, you will be in Washington by 9.00.

We won't go out for dinner if you don't want to.

If I have time, I'll visit Tokyo.

They won't eat if they aren't hungry.


2nd Conditional:


We use the 2nd conditional to imagine what might happen in certain situations.


We form it like this:

If + past simple + would/wouldn't + infinitive


Examples:


If I earned more money, I would buy more clothes.

He would get the job if he spoke fluent English.

If I had time, I'd go to the gym more often.

Travelling to work would be easier if I had a car.


We can use the were form of the 2nd conditional to give or ask for advice


Examples:


If I were you I'd change my job.

What would you do if you were me?
