GRAMMAR FOCUS -
Elementary - Pronouns
Pre-Intermediate - First and Second Conditional
Intermediate - Make vs Do
Upper Intermediate - Sequencing
We use the first conditional when we talk about real and possible situations.
I’ll go shopping on the way home if I have time.
If it’s a nice day tomorrow, we’ll go to the beach.
If Arsenal win, they’ll be top of the league.
In first conditional sentences, the structure is usually if + present simple and will + infinitive. It’s not important which clause comes first.
The second conditional is used to talk about ‘unreal’ or impossible things.
If I won a lot of money, I’d buy a big house in the country.
Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world?
If you didn’t smoke so much, you’d feel a lot better.
The structure is usually if + past simple and would + infinitive. It’s not important which clause comes first. Look at the difference between the first and second conditionals.
In January: If it snows tomorrow, I’ll go skiing. It might snow tomorrow.
In August: If it snowed tomorrow, I’d go skiing. It almost certainly won’t snow tomorrow.
NOTE: Although many conditional sentences use if + will/would, conditional sentences can also use other words instead of ‘if’ – e.g. ‘when’ ‘as soon as’ ‘in case’ Other modal verbs can be used instead of ‘will/would’ – e.g. ‘can/could’, ‘may’ ‘might’.
24/7 EVENT: Cinema Movie -

Book of the Week
For your reading enjoyment, go to the library and read chapter 1 of Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days.
Around the World in Eighty Days is an adventure novel written by renowned French author Jules Verne, published in 1873. It tells the story of Phileas Fogg, a resident of London, who makes a bet with the members of his club that he can circumnavigate the globe over land and sea in less than eighty days.
This novel is one of Verne's most famous.In the middle of his writing career, Verne purchased a ship and began sailing around the British Isles and the Mediterranean, with many of his adventures in these ports providing inspiration for Around the World in Eighty Days.
The idea for the novel came to him while reading a newspaper in a Paris café in which it was stated that a man could make a journey around the world in eighty days. He wondered how the inevitable crossing of the International Date Line would come into play, making the traveler gain or lose a day, and thus the idea for the novel was born.The idea of traveling around the world in a certain amount of time was popular, and other writers had written about it before, dating back all the way to Greek traveler Pausanias writing "Around the World" around 100AD.
