I plan to add a new lesson to my YouTube playlist on conditionals. Once students feel comfortable using if, I like to address doubts over additional forms, such as the easily confused words even if, only if, and unless. In another post, I targeted even if vs. even though. It’s true that structures sharing at least one word already look the same, so distinguishing the differences in meaning is crucial in order to avoid miscommunication.
If you’d like to double check your students’ accuracy and comfort level with conditionals, please check out my Easily confused conditionals_handout.
