How to Use First Conditional Grammar

1st & 2nd Conditonal

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?

    I hardly leave a response, but i did a few searching and
    wound up here How to Use First Conditional Grammar | English Tutor Online.
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Could it be just me or does it give the impression like a few of the remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing on other places, I’d like to keep up
    with everything new you have to post. Would you make a list of all of all your communal
    sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
