CONDITIONAL SENTENCE 2

The Present Conditional

The present conditional describes a situation now that isn't true or isn't happening. Teachers also call this the present unreal or present contrary-to-fact.

Example:

If I had a million dollars, I would give it away to all my friends.

"If I had a million dollars" is in the past tense, but it describe a possible situation (or impossible) situation in the present.

"I would give it away to all my friends" tells the outcome of the condition. You can use "would," "could," "might," or "should" in these kinds of sentences.

This next sentence uses the verb "be" in the present conditional:

I wouldn't do that if I were you.

Well, I'm not you, so this describes a situation that is not true. Notice that "were" is used with "i." Isn't that strange? But it's correct.

Here are some more examples:


If she had more time today, she could meet her friend for lunch.

(The situation is present, but notice the use of "had," the past tense of "have." This means that she doesn't have time.

If I knew how to sing, I could probably make a little money playing guitar on the weekends.

(But I'm not very good at singing while playing guitar. Perhaps I'll get better with practice. The past tense of know is knew)

If this penguin could talk, he would probably tell us human beings to stop changing the climate.

(A penguin can't talk but if it could...... The past tense of can talk is could talk)
