CONDITIONALS (Умовні речення)

Conditionals are two parts sentences which are connected with the word 'if'. With all conditionals, when we start the sentence with 'if, we must use a comma. When 'if is in the middle of the sentence, we don't use a comma.

Example: If you smoke too much, you will die.
You will be fat if you eat fish and chips everyday.


1st Conditionals (Умовні речення 1-го типу)
We use the 1st Conditional to express the strong possibility that something will happen in the future. We can also use it to make predictions about things we are sure about.
1 st Conditional = if + Present Simple + Future Simple (or Modal + Infinitive)

Note: We use a comma after the 'if-clause'.

Example: If you leave now, you will catch< the bus.
1 st Conditional = Future Simple (or Modal + Infinitive) + if + Present Simple

Note: We don't use comma in the sentence.

Example: You will catch the bus if you leave now.

Example: If you drop that plate, it wi!! break into a million pieces.

  3. What about the curriculum, GCSEs and A levels?
  4. What languages do you teach?
  5. Do you have to play a particular sport?

A A very broad curriculum is characteristic of the first three years. At GCSE boys study seven subjects and three options from thirteen and at A Level from five to six subjects from a range of thirty.

B At 6 am and 10 pm usually. However, we like boys to arrive from 8 am and after school, they can work in the library till 5 pm.

C The modern languages are French, German, Spanish and Russian. And one of the first three can be chosen as the first language studies with the opportunity to start a second language in the Third Form.

D It is difficult to say. It depends on whether Hampton is right for the boy as much as whether the boy is right for Hampton. Each year there are large numbers of applicants who take the entrance exam.

E They are in forms of about 25, usually less, some a little more. Each Form has a Form Tutor[1].

F All boys can choose the sport they wish to play. In the First Year, they can pick football or rugby. In the Third Year, they can also row. The summer games are cricket, tennis and athletics. Swimming and badminton are available, too.
