CONDITIONALS PART 2 - MIXED CONDITIONALS

These are probably among the most popular conditionals in English language. Students 'love' learning about them ;) I'd say - if you have an open mind and do not get discouraged straight from the beginning, you may find that those sentences can really come in handy in every day conversation :)
Let's give them a shot!




* The first two cases, namely PAST CONDITION + FUTURE RESULT and PAST CONDITION + PAST/PRESENT RESULT, TALK ABOUT SOMETHING REAL - NOT HYPOTHETICAL - that's why you shouldn't be surprised to find there PAST SIMPLE in the sentence after IF although it IS ABOUT THE PAST. However, this PAST really happened:

Francis really left at midnight yesterday, so he will probably be here by lunchtime tomorrow.

If Francis LEFT at midnight yesterday, he will be here by lunchtime tomorrow.

You really gave them all your money! You have made a big mistake!

If you GAVE them all your money, you have made a big mistake.


And LAST but not LEAST, a word from BBC ;)

CONDITIONALS PART 1

This never seems to be an outdated topic ;) I have probably not found a student who wouldn't like to - at least - revise the structure of CONDITIONAL SENTENCES in English. Regardless of the level they represent ;) It seems to me that it's never enough! And I love talking about CONDITIONALS,  too! So it's always a win-win situation. Let's revise than!


Here you'll find some older posts on conditionals - explained in detail and in Polish ;)

  1. ZERO CONDITIONAL
  2. FIRST CONDITIONAL
  3. SECOND CONDITIONAL
  4. THIRD CONDITIONAL
And here is a short summary of what CONDITIONALS are like:
