Future Unreal Conditional

Definition:

The Future Unreal Conditional describes imaginary actions you think you will do in the future.

Future Unreal Conditional is different from other Unreal Conditional forms because you do not know what will happen in the future, you must guess.

It is called "unreal" because it is not likely or possible the action will happen in the future.

Only "if" is used with Future Unreal Conditional. Using "If" says that you do not know if an action will happen or not, you must guess. Using "when" says that an action will definitely happen in the future.

There are three types of Unreal Future Conditionals.

Example:

1. If I did not half to work next year, I would spend all year traveling the world.

2. If I had money, I would quit my job tomorrow.

3. If I were moving to London, I would have a going away party.
