Summer English Lesson XII. First conditional

Hi students,

How was your weekend? I hope it was good. Today’s lesson is about the first conditional.

We use the first conditional to talk about the result of a possible event or situation in the future. The “If clause” talks about things that are real or possible, but not certain. The “main clause” says what we think the result will be in this situation.


          IF CLAUSE                                                                 MAIN CLAUSE

If + subject + present simple,                       subject + will/won’t + infinitive

If I am late again,                                                  I will lose my job.

If I eat insects,                                                       I will be sick.


The “if clause” can be first or second in the sentence. When we start with the if clause we use a comma after this clause. When we start with the “main clause” we don’t use a comma.

If I go to Dublin, I will visit  the Trinity College.

I will visit the Trinity College if I go to Dublin.

Ok, this all about the first conditional. I hope you don¡t have problems with it. Next lesson is about the second conditional. DON’T MISS THE LESSON!!!

Bye. Juanjo.
