First & Second Conditionals – English Grammar Exercise

The first and second conditionals can both be used to describe possible situations.  The first conditional is used for something that is possible, and could actually happen. But the second conditional is used for something that is possible, and will almost certainly not happen.

Here is a reminder for how to form the first and second conditionals:

I Conditional

If it rains tomorrow, I will bring my umbrella.

If + present tense + will + verb

II Conditional

If I had a million dollars, I would buy an expensive car.

If + past + would + verb

Try these exercises to practice first and second conditionals!

I & II Conditionals - I

Choose the correct verb to complete the sentence.

I & II Conditionals - II

Write the missing verb to complete the sentence.

Countable and Uncountable Nouns – English Grammar Exercise

Countable nouns can be counted.

Ex: an orange, three oranges, many oranges.

We can use a/an for singular countable nouns, and some for plural countable nouns. Here are some more examples of sentences with countable nouns. We can also use “many” with countable nouns to describe a quantity.

I have a red car.
She bought some apples at the store.

We saw an elephant at the zoo.

There were many dogs at the park today.

In negative sentences we should use a/an for singular nouns and any for plural nouns.

She doesn’t own a house.
We don’t have any children.

Uncountable cannot be counted.

Ex: milk, water, rice.

We should use “some” when talking about uncountable nouns.

There is some milk in the fridge.
I gave him some money to buy lunch.

In negative sentences, we should use any. We use “much” with uncountable nouns.

There isn’t any rice.
I don’t want any coffee.
We don’t have much money.

Learn English with Your Kids! – The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle

Two of the most highly requested areas in English language learning are English for preschoolers (ages 3 – 5) and Business English. Although these areas can seem like polar opposites, they don’t have to be! It often occurs that adults spending all of their time concentrating on Business English miss out on the foundational words and phrases that play an integral part in speaking the language – words which appear frequently in the English directed towards very young learners.
So, in order to help you improve your foundations of English, here are some activities you can do with your children to not only help you to improve your English basics, but also help you to begin introducing English to your young learner.
