Conditionals Introduction

Definition:

Conditional Sentences discuss real and unreal situations. Conditional sentences suggest ideas about a topic.

Conditional Sentences are saying that you think an action will happen if another action happens.

There are two kinds of Conditional Sentences: real and unreal.

Real Conditional Sentences describe real-life situations. (See example 1 and 2)

Unreal Conditional Sentences describe unreal, imaginary situations. (See example 3 and 4)
