Conditionals
Listed below are examples, uses and formation of Conditionals followed by some exercises.
Examples  Usage

Conditional 0 If I am late, my father takes me to school. She doesn't worry if Julian stays out after school.

Situations that are always true if something happens. NOTE This use is similiar to, and can usually be replaced by, a time clause using 'when' (example: When I am late, my father takes me to school.)

Conditional 1 If it rains, we will stay at home. He will arrive late unless he hurries up. Simon will buy a new car, if he gets his raise.

Often called the "real" conditional because it is used for real - or possible - situations. These situations take place if a certain condition is met. NOTE In the conditional 1 we often use unless which means 'if ... not'. In other words, '...unless he hurries up.' could also be written, '...if he doesn't hurry up.'.

Conditional 2 If he studied more, he would pass the exam. I would lower taxes if I were the the Prime Minister. They would buy a new house if they won the lottery. Often called the "unreal" conditional because it is used for unreal - impossible or improbable - situations. This conditional provides an imaginary result for a given situation. NOTE The verb 'to be', when used in the 2nd conditional, is always conjugated as 'were'.
