Conditionals are challenging for students and for teachers. When I decided to cover this grammar topic on YouTube back in 2017, I knew a whole playlist was in order. (View lessons.) I needed more than a dozen lessons to feel like I covered all the bases. To be truthful, I think there’s still more I could present and practice. In fact, it’s been a requested topic at my recent live streams. More explanations, more examples, and more opportunities to put it all into use — that’s what I’ve been asked to give.
If you have upper level students who wonder about all the possible combinations we can use in mixed conditionals, please consider my Mixed_Conditonals_handout. I aim to create meaningful practice while helping students focus on the combinations that are specific to a situation, such as a past regret or unreal present that we’re happy not to experience.
