CONDITIONAL SENTENCES TYPE 1, 2 and 3 *Bahasa Inggris Bisnis 2 #
Theory of the conditional sentence
FIRST CONDITIONAL: “UNREAL, BUT LIKELY”
This conditional deals with “unreal, but likely” situations in the present or future. We call it “unreal” because situation we are describing hasn’t happened yet, and “likely” because we can easily imagine it happening. We use the first conditional to describe these situations.
For example, a 3 year old child is reaching toward the fire. She hasn’t put her fingers into the fire yet, but we know that small children don’t understand fire, so we can easily imagine her touching it.
SECOND CONDITIONAL: “UNREAL AND UNLIKELY”
This conditional deals with situations in the present and future that are both unreal and unlikely. The situation we are describing hasn’t happened yet, and we really can’t imagine it happening very easily, except in a freak accident or a moment of great stupidity.
THIRD CONDITIONAL: “UNREAL CONDITION”
This conditional deals with situations in the *past* that are unreal—they didn’t happen. We can still imagine what the consequences would have been.
