Conditional Sentences


Conditional Sentences are also known as Conditional Clause or If Clause. They are use to express that the action in the main clause (without if) can only take place if a certain condition (in the clause with if) is fulfilled. There are three types of Conditional Sentences.

1. Conditional Sentences Type 1 -> it is possible and also very likely that the condition will be fulfilled.
Form : if + Simple Present, Will Future
Example : if I find her addres, I’ll send her an invitation.

2. Conditional Sentences Type 2 -> it is possible but very unlikely, that the condition will be fulfilled.
Form : if + Simple Past, Conditional I (= would + infinitive)
Example : if I found her addres, I would send her an invitation.

3. Conditional Sentences Type 3 -> it is impossible that the condition will be fulfilled because it refers to the past.
Form : if + Past Perfect, Conditional II (= would + have + Past Participle)
Example : if I had found her address, I would have sent her an invitation.
