2 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 2 of 15 Conditionals Do you know how to use conditionals? Are you sure what a modal is? This presentation will let you practise using conditionals and modals.

3 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 3 of 15 Think about what you would do if you won £14 million on the National Lottery? Write five sentences. Use this structure: If I won the National Lottery I would… If I won the National Lottery…

4 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 4 of 15 Conditionals You have just written five sentences using the conditional! Conditional sentences deal with situations which might happen or which might have happened. If I had rollerblades I could skate to school. If I had more time I would read all these books!

5 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 5 of 15 If I went to Oxford Street, I would catch a number 3 bus. OR If I go to Oxford Street, I will catch a number 3 bus. OR If I were to go to Oxford Street, I would catch a number 3 bus. Conditionals Here are three sentences. They are all conditional. They all mean the same.

11 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 11 of 15 © HMSO Activity Write a sentence about each of these pictures. You can use either of the conditionals you have been practising.

12 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 12 of 15 These are words we use when giving people advice about what they should do and when we are telling people what they have to do. How many modals can you remember? Modals Did you remember any of these? couldshould musthave to canmay oughtneed not Now choose four modals and use each in a sentence.

13 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 13 of 15 Modals

14 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 14 of 15 Can and may are commonly confused. Can is about whether something is possible. May is asking for permission to do something. For example: Can I have another sweet? You can and you may. Modals

15 © Boardworks Ltd 2003 15 of 15 Activity Dear Sarah, I don’t know what to do! I really like this guy in my class but I don’t know if he likes me too. I’m worried that if I were to ask him out him and his friends would laugh at me. I would be very grateful if you could give me some advice. Thanks, Jade. Dear Jade, If I were you I’d tell this guy how you feel. You should try and talk to him on his own. If he has any sense he ‘ll be flattered. If he laughs at you he isn’t worth the bother. Good luck! Write a letter to an agony aunt asking for advice about a problem. Use conditionals if appropriate! Swap letters with a partner and reply to their letter giving advice. Try and use some modals in your answer.
