# Conditionals

We use conditionals to express the consequences of a fact or a situation that might happen or might have happened but didn't.

## Notes

In this lesson you will learn how to use the main types of conditional sentences: the zero conditional, the first conditional, the second conditional, and the third conditional.

## Zero conditional

We use the zero conditional to talk about facts or situations which are always true.

Here's the structure:

 Condition Result IF YOU FREEZE WATER IT BECOMES ICE IF PRESENT SIMPLE PRESENT SIMPLE

## First conditional

We use the first conditional to talk about fact that are likely to happen in the future.

Here's the structure:

 Condition Result IF YOU TAKE THE FIRST BUS YOU WILL GET THERE ON TIME IF PRESENT SIMPLE FUTURE SIMPLE

## Second conditional

We use the second conditional to imagine facts or situations that are impossible or unlikely to happen in reality.

Here's the structure:

 Condition Result IF YOU STUDIED YOU WOULD PASS YOUR EXAMS IF PAST SIMPLE WOULD + INFINITIVE
