If I study, I will pass my English test.
Right now, we are learning Second Conditional and the pattern is as follow.
IF + PAST SIMPLE, ------- WOULD + INFINITIVE.
We insist that commutative property also works for conditionals, having in mind that there could be some changes in referencing.
Some games that I do with my students to revise second conditionals are
- What would you do if you won a lot of money? Check my pp about money, clicking here. In general, what would you do if....
- If you were the Prime Minister... what would you do? We all love to change the world into a better place, don't we?
- We play IF YOU WERE, for instance, an animal, an object, a precious stone, a feeling, a famous person... let your imagination fly. You can even play If I were a boy by Beyoncé.
- You can make them do a couple of sentences using a big font and them separate each clause, shuffle them and read them ramdonly mixed with someone else's clause. If they are imaginative, the results could be hilarious.
- Play Madonna's song Superpop.
