First Conditional!

We use the first conditional when we want to talk about future events, conditions, or situations we think are real or possible. It is an important tense to use because there is always a possibility that a condition will or will not happen! Think of the first conditional like a statement with two parts – a hypothesis (the if statement), and a conclusion (the then statement). Some examples of the first conditional include:

  • If you don’t bring an umbrella outside, you will get wet!
  • If they are late again, I will be quite annoyed.
  •  If Dad doesn’t have dessert tonight, he definitely will eat something sweet tomorrow.
  •  What will you do if I miss the plane?
  • Who will call her if her phone breaks?
  • If he finishes school early, we will go to a restaurant for lunch.

 

Hint: Notice how the use of the first conditional typically
consists of “if” + present simple verb in the condition
clause and “will” + base form of the verb in the result
clause.
