#013 Learn the English conditionals with a story
I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.
In this episode:
- I’ll talk about how we use conditionals in English.
- After that, we’ll practice them with a Point Of View Story.
Ok, let’s get started!
I’m going to review the different conditionals in English. I don’t recommend you to memorize them, but to understand them. You need plenty of contexts, and the best way to practice the conditionals is by using the Point of View story technique.
Conditionals in English aren’t complicated. I’m going to give you some examples:
Here, we talk about things, which are always true. For example:
If you heat water, it boils.
If you heat ice, it melts.
If it rains, the grass gets wet.
Here we talk about a probable result. For example:
If you go to the cinema, you’ll enjoy the new Star Trek movie.
If you study more, you’ll pass the exam.
If I have time, I’ll help you.
