How to use IF…THEN… | First Conditional English Grammar Tense | Go Natural English


Hello English learners, I’m so excited that you are here. We are continuing today exploring grammar with quick and clear explanations we’re focusing today on a conditional tense the first Conditional but we are not here to just memorize grammar rules. Go natural. English is not about memorizing rules it’s about using the rules to build a Strong base to help you to speak English with confidence and fluency So as I mentioned today, we’re going to talk about how and when to use the first conditional tense We’re gonna make it simple and easy So this lesson is sponsored by the complete go natural English course fluent communication It contains over 250 premium video Recorded lessons that you cannot find anywhere else as well as our community for practice and live online practice sessions with go natural English teachers So it is the best way to get feedback and corrections on your English So if you would like to take your English to the next level then learn more about the complete go natural English course at gonaturalenglish.com slash course see oh you are s ee Ok, let’s dive into the first Conditional the first thing that I want to say is that we often use this when we’re talking about plans For example, do you want to come to my party? I’m not sure if it rains I won’t come if it doesn’t rain I’ll come this is an example of the first conditional so we often use this when we’re responding about Invitations or making plans that might change based on something else we make the first conditional with if if It rains then the subject in this case it then the simple presence in this case rains and then with another subject and the future tense So quick important note here most books websites teachers do not tell you about another way that native speakers often form the first conditional and that is that we use will to talk about the future and we also use Going to to talk about the future. So for example, I might say if it doesn’t rain I am Going to go to your party or if it doesn’t rain I will go to your party or I’ll go to your party right because we often use contractions when we’re speaking naturally speaking of which no native speaker is going to say I am Going to go to your party I’m sure that was painful to listen to because you probably know that native speakers Linked sounds together between words and it sounds more like I’m gonna go to your party So, let’s see a few other examples because I love sharing examples They help us to clearly understand how to use the grammar. For example, if traffic is bad You’ll be late or if it’s really loud outside. I won’t be able to record this lesson or If you subscribe to go natural English on YouTube and subscribe to the go natural English podcast You will be much better at English very soon. I think that’s a pretty good example Okay, let’s talk about how the first conditional is different from the zero conditional because in the last English tip that I shared With you we talked about the zero conditional So just to quickly recap that we saw that the zero conditional was four facts Right and we use the simple present for both parts of the sentence If you want to know more about the zero conditional you can look back at that lesson So the first conditional is about specific situations and we use the future tense So it’s about possibility things that might or might not happen. It’s about possibilities if This happens now then that will happen in the future or won’t happen So I hope this helps you with the first conditional in the next Grammar focus English tip because this month is a grammar Palooza here at go natural English We’re gonna look at the second conditional which is more about expressing your doubts So it’ll be interesting to see how to do that.
