Conditional types 0, 1

Task 4. Read the examples. How do we form conditional types 0,1?

  • If/when ice gets hot, it melts(Type 0)
  • If we visit Nicaragua, we’ll go surfing (Type1)
  • If you like extreme sports, try quad racing (Type1)
  • Unless I train, I’ll lose the game(=if I don’t) ( Type1)

Explanation of the grammar

   We use type 0 conditional to talk about a fact of nature or a general truth. We form type 0 conditional with a when/if clause and a main clause. We always use the present simple tense in type 0 conditional.

   We use type 1 conditional to talk about things that are likely to happen in the future. We form type 1 conditional with an if-clause and a main clause. We always use the present simple tense in the if-clause and the future simple tense/an imperative/can, may, should+base form of the verb in the main clause.

Practice type 0 conditional

Task 5. Write conditional type 0 sentences using the phrases.

  1. you/fall/into a river(you/get wet)

  3. you/put an inflatable object in water(it/float)

Listening , speaking and writing

Task 9. Listen and read the text Extremely weird! Compare and contrast the three sports. In five minutes, write a few sentences. Tell the class.

Suggested Answer Key

Volcano surfing, river bugging and wok racing  all involve travelling downwards. They all involve travelling in or on a piece of equipment and they  all require protective clothing. Volcano surfing involves heat while the other two involve cold. Wok racing  and river bugging are water sports, but volcano surfing takes place on dry land. None of them are activities that I would do because they are too dangerous./ All of them are activities I would like to do because they are exciting.
