The first type of conditional sentences is the most common and most often used in spoken English. With this structure you are talking about a REAL condition, something POSSIBLE to happen.
In the Introduction to conditionals you could learn about the difference between WILL and WOULD. For the 1st conditional you need the word WILL – but in the right place!
I will help you if I have time.
You will learn this if you listen carefully.
– this looks quite simple, right? But many people make a mistake here and put the word WILL after “If” – which is NOT CORRECT:
I will help you if I
will have time – the second WILL shouldn´t be there.
if + present tense (even though you are talking about the future)
At the end of the video I start a sentence “If I cook dinner tonight….” and the Youtube members added some nice ideas how to finish it. Here are some of them:
… I will light the candles and open a good bottle of red wine
… I will be so happy
… I´ll be free
And how about you, how would you finish the sentence?
