sentences contain two clauses: the condition clause (if clause) and the result clause Conditional sentences show a relationship between a condition and a result of the condition
1) factual conditionals express general truths, habits, and logical possibilities. Present or past in both clauses If I have money, I spend it
If a bird is happy, it sings. You see a lot of bears if you live in Montana. My cat moves her tail a lot if she’s nervous. If I needed help, she gave it to me.
2) future conditionals Express conditions and results in the future. The if clause is in the present and the result clause is in the future with will or be going to. If it rains tomorrow, we won’t go to the pool.
Future conditionals express what will happen in the future if certain conditions occur. They are often used to make predictions, plans, offers, suggestions, requests. If you study, you’ll pass the test. If you go to New York next week, you’ll see the show.
3) Present unreal conditionals Are used to talk about conditions that are not true in the present and about the imagined results of these conditions.
Present unreal conditionals have a past form of the verb in the if clause and would/could/might + base form in the result clause. If we had a car, we would drive to the mall.
Were is used for all persons of be in the if clause. (I, you, she, he, we, they were) If I were the teacher, I’d give a lot less homework.
