I have had hundreds of students ask about how to use the conditional grammar. Well, it really is not as hard as you think. This blog is the 1st part of a series of 3 blogs which cover the 1st, 2nd and 3rd conditional. Sequel blog links found below.
Let’s look at what makes the first conditional grammar!
First Conditional: real possibility
We are thinking about a condition or situation in the future, and the result of this condition. There is a real possibility that this condition will happen.
So what is the structure of the first conditional?
If + verb + will + verb
Will +verb + if + verb
Can I see some examples?
If it rains tomorrow I will stay home all day.
I will stay home all day if it rains tomorrow.
My last thoughts:
Can you add more similar example sentences of the 1st conditional in the blog comment box for our teachers to check for you?
