Second Conditional Presentation Second Conditional Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • Second Conditional Presentation
  • A. The Second Conditional is used to talk about 'impossible' situations. Examples: 1. If we were in London today, we would be able to go to the concert in Hyde Park. 2. If I had millions dollars, I'd give a lot to charity. 3. If there were no hungry people in this world, it would be a much better place. 4. If everyone had clean water to drink, there would be a lot less disease.
  • B. Note that after I / he/ she /it we often use the subjunctive form 'were' and not 'was'. (Some people think that 'were' is the only 'correct' form but other people think 'was' is equally 'correct' .) Examples: 1. If she were happy in her job, she wouldn't be looking for another one. 2. If I lived in Japan, I'd have sushi every day. 3. If they were to enter our market, we'd have big problems.
  • C. Note the form 'If I were you' which is often used to give advice. Examples: 1. If I were you, I'd look for a new place to live. 2. If I were you, I'd go back to school and get more qualifications.
  • D. The Second Conditional is also used to talk about 'unlikely' situations. Examples: 1. If I went to China, I'd visit the Great Wall. 2. f I was the President, I'd reduce taxes. 3. If you were in my position, you'd understand.
  • E. Note that the main clause can contain 'would' 'could' or 'might. Examples: 1. If I had the chance to do it again, I would do it differently. 2. If we met up for lunch, we could go to that new restaurant. 3. If I spoke to him directly, I might be able to persuade him.
  • F. Also note that sometimes the 'if clause' is implied rather than spoken. Examples: 1. What would I do without you? ("if you weren't here") 2. Where would I get one at this time of night? ("if I wanted one") 3. He wouldn't agree. ("if I asked him")
  • G. Note that the 'If clause' can contain the past simple or the past continuous. Examples: 1. If I was still working in Brighton, I would commute by train. 2. f she were coming, she would be here by now. 3. If they were thinking of selling, I would want to buy.
