Conditional sentences in English grammar The most common kind of conditional sentence that you are likely to meet will contain two clauses, one of which will start with the word if, as in If it rains, we'll have to stay at home. The clause without the if is the main clause of the sentence, while the if clause is subordinate. The order of the two clauses is generally not that important to the meaning of the sentence; so we can switch the if clause to the end of the sentence if we want to. Most grammar books tend to recognise four basic configurations of tenses in conditional sentences which vary in structure according to the time that we are talking about (past, present or future) and the meaning. These four types are normally referred to as the zero, first, second and third conditionals; we will look at the forms and meanings of each of these in turn and also examine some of the alternatives to these four basic types. Zero-type conditionals Form and meaning First-type conditionals If he's staying at the party, I'm leaving.

Does Speaking A Foreign Language Change Your Personality? My high school English teacher used to tell us stuff like, “Learning a foreign language changes you forever.” Despite being an obvious attempt to make us passionate about her subject, her words made sense to me — the kid who quoted obscure Buffy the Vampire Slayer lines and treated Alanis Morissette’s lyrics like the word of God. After all, without a basic understanding of the English language I couldn’t have done any of that, and all those beautiful imaginary friendships would have never blossomed. Then I made it to adulthood (I think) and experienced first-hand the perks of speaking a foreign language: hitting on exotic men (whilst still using Buffy references as pick up lines #ForeverAlone) and weaseling my way into more office gossip than ever before. Split of the online self Learning English strongly affected my habits, but was I really profoundly changed by it? Blogging is where the signs of this metamorphosis first showed.

Conditionals-English There are basically four types of conditional, though combinations of the four are also possible depending on the context. - Zero Conditional : if + present ==> present Expresses general thruths and scientific facts. Ex: If it rains, the sun doesn't shine. - First Conditional : if + present ==> will + inf. We use it to make predictions or talk about actions or states that may or may not happen ( likely 50/50) Ex: If it rains, I'll stay at home. - Second Conditional : if + past simple ==> would + inf Refers to actions or states that are not real or unlikely to be real in the future. Ex: If I won 1,000,000, I would travel - Third Conditional : if + past perfect ==> would have + past participle Refers to actions in the past, and can be used to express regrets. Ex: If you hadn't given me a lift, I would have missed the train.

Never Say This In A Salary Negotiation Ruth's story: One child refugee's journey from Eritrea to England - CBBC Newsround Ruth was 14 when she left her home country of Eritrea in east Africa. She didn't like the way she was being treated, so she embarked on a dangerous journey to the UK. Ruth has been telling Newsround's Hayley her story... Three-thousand children Three-thousand children arrived in the UK alone last year. Many of them are migrants or refugees escaping war or devastation in their home countries. When they get to the UK they are often tired and afraid. They are taken by immigration officers or police to a safe place where they are asked lots of questions. This is so that the people in charge can understand how old the child is, where they have come from and what they will need to keep them healthy and safe. Leave to remain If the child is under 17, they are given leave to remain, which means they can stay in the UK and will be looked after until they are old enough to look after themselves. I have spoken to 12 children. One of them was Ruth. Living in Eritrea But this was no easy task. Leaving Eritrea

Conditionals We use conditional sentences to say one thing depends on another. They can be used to talk about real or imaginary situations. One of the clauses starts with if (or a similar word) – this is the conditional clause. The other clause talks about the result of the conditional clause happening. Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds. Let’s look at some examples. If you don’t tell me, I’ll just keep asking.If I promise to travel less, will you forgive me? I know that one. That’s right. And can you change the order of the clauses round? Yes, and we leave out the comma in the middle of the sentence if the order is changed round. I’ll just keep asking if you don’t tell me. OK. Right again! If you travelled less because of me, I’d feel worse.If I had the opportunity to visit places like that, I wouldn’t complain! So, in the second example, Oliver doesn’t think he will have the opportunity to travel a lot. Can you use any other verbs, apart from would, in this kind of conditional? I see. Yes.
