English Conditional Sentences (with examples!)

Hi I'm Emma from mmmenglish I have a grammar lesson for you today and me Excited about being I will be sharing this video because he is One of the videos you've been asking for a while We will be talking about conditional sentences in English I will go through the infrastructure And the meaning of conditional sentences in English If you studied these sentences before this video It'll be awesome as your review But if you are not familiar with conditional sentences That would be a great introduction Lets start Sometimes you get the feeling that English grammar can be Something missing Yes, there are some rules, but sometimes they are not provided Sometimes there are exceptions I got it I must teach her. But there is A grammatical structure in English that follows clear rules Sentence structure and conditions Brilliant and clear That makes it easy for you to feel confident about No way to express your thoughts When talking We use conditional load to really explain what Happens, what is possible to happen So the result that is possible or likely will happen in the future We talk about what we hope will happen So we envision different results for The situation is in the present, and what might have happened So think about different results That happened in the past There are four types of conditional statements They are really the same But they are not the same If I get sick.

Go to the doctor If I get sick. I will go to the doctor If I got sick, I would have gone to the doctor If I got sick I would not go to the doctor Let's talk about what is the same About these sentences, they all use two paragraphs There are two parts to every sentence Divided by a comma All sentences use if A little reminder that we use hyperlinks In the English language to join two ideas together in one sentence. I ate an apple and two sweets. I like it but I don't want it. I would do that if she pushed me to the movies later.

So all of these words are really, really small Grammar words but they have an important function. They connect two ideas together And conditional sentences Everyone used an "if" to join two ideas together. In all conditional statements we have an if condition. The result condition. So the if condition is an event or situation It has to happen in order for the other thing to happen. Thus, the result can only occur if the "if" statement occurs. That is why it is called a conditional sentence. Condition is something you have to do Or a situation that needs to be in place For something else to happen. You cannot get through this without pressing this. There is a really important relationship In between these two things. One depends on the other. Now these sentences are all the same But there are some really obvious differences as well.

Meaning check verbs. This is where the main difference between These conditional sentences are. Everything in verbs, you can see that, right? And the meaning is also different. We use each type of sentence in a different position. If you haven't already noticed, we've got zero Conditional, first conditional, The second cop, the third cop. And I'm going to go through all kind of Conditional sentence now one by one. So let's start with the conditional zero I recommend that you take some notes We go through all of these examples. It is called the actual conditional zero. If I get sick, go to the doctor. It is one of the easiest to remember because both are Sentences in the simple present tense. We have an "if" condition with the simple present then The present simple tense in the main result sentence as well. So if this happens, then this is what happens. We use the conditional zero to talk about habits, Facts and facts. You can't argue about these things, can you? With these things, we're not talking about the possibility. it's the truth. If you put ice in your drink, it melts.

We see? It is really simple. So I want you to practice by finishing this sentence Mine. I want you to write your own sentence In the comments so I can check it out. If you eat … Remember, the present is simple, the present is simple. Then we have the first conditional Which we used to talk about is possible and likely Future results. If I get sick, I will go to the doctor. So it is possible that I will get sick in the future If that happens, I will probably go to the doctor.

So we use "if" with the simple present And "will" with the verb we have the infinitive. If it's hot, I will go swimming at the beach. Now I'm sure it will be hot tomorrow? No, but this summer here in Australia. And if it's hot, I would very likely go swimming. If you join Lingoda Language Sprint, You will get a lot of English speaking practice. Now it is your turn to finish the sentence. If we leave now … Complete this sentence in the comments below Don't hesitate to pause the video at any time And write your conditional sentences there For me to check. Now we have the second condition and we're using it When we want to imagine The current situation is different. So if I get sick, I'll go to the doctor.

This is the default, isn't it? It is not real. Do I look sick? I am not sick. I imagine the current situation Differs for a reason. I imagine I'm sick. Now if this was true, I'd go to the doctor. Now am I really going to the doctor? Because I'm not really sick. It is an unrealistic situation. But to express this in English, we use "if" With Simple Past Then "will" and the infinitive verb In the sentence result. So we use the modal verb To show that we are visualizing the result. Do not forget that in the English language, all the verbs that follow Modal verbs in an infinite form. If I had more money, I would buy a boat. Now it is really common and normal to use contractions In conditional sentences. I would definitely say When I speak normally: If I had more money, I would buy a boat. I would do that. This pronunciation is much more common In English speaking. Well, now is the time to finish this sentence. If you finished work earlier … Finish this sentence in the comments. There are a lot of different uses For the second policeman.

We use it to give advice, to give reasons why we can't Do something and generally just imagine it Life is different. So I definitely should go for all of those Various uses are detailed in another video very soon. The third condition is the unconditional unconditional past. If I were sick, I would have gone to the doctor. We use this structure to visualize a different past. Different from what actually happened, right? We use "if" with the past perfect And “will” with the past participle. To be clear, the “if” condition did not really happen But I would imagine the result if the past was different. In this case, were you really sick? I'm not talking about what really happened, I am talking about what could have happened in the past But he didn't What would I do? If this has happened.

You can think of a time when this grammatical structure will be Will it actually be useful? When you regret something in the past, it's something Happened in the past and you wished That result was different. If we look at the weather report, We had stayed home! If I know you are visiting, I'd be time to see you. Well now it's your turn. If I had …

Remember the structure. Let's do it. Pause the video if you need to so you can write Your sentence in the comments below. So this was an overview Conditional sentences in the English language.
