Activity Ideas::

              1. Finish the phrase:

                1. Give your students one clause and have them finish it with a corresponding clause in the first conditional.

  • For example, you could write on the board:

If I have time this weekend...

If we travel this summer...

If I visit my family...

I will go to the movies if...

He will read a new book. if ...

Will you help me if...

2. Have the students finish the sentences either orally or in writing


              1. Chain of events:

                1. Give students one clause and have them complete it in the first conditional, then the made up clause can be used as the first clause of the next sentence for another student to finish etc. For example:

Student A: If I go to France this summer, I will...

Student B: If I go to France this summer, I will visit the Eiffel Tower.

Student C: If I visit the Eiffel Tower, I will ride to the very top.

Student D: If I ride to the very top of the Eiffel Tower, I will drop a water balloon on a French person.


              1. Miming:

                1. Divide the students into pairs and ask the pairs to think of 5 actions to mime doing to each other.

                2. As one student performs the action to his/her partner, have the other student respond using the conditional.

                3. BULLET: One mime could be:

A: If you kiss me, I will slap you.

B: If you slap me, I will kick you in the butt.

A: If you kick me in the butt, I will kiss you again, etc.

d. Then the two students would get up in front of the class and perform their mime while saying their sentences.


Second Conditional



Grammar: The second conditional is also called the present unreal because it refers to hypothetical situations. It is formed from two clauses: an if clause in the simple past and a clause with “would”.

- For example, “If he called me, I would go to the movies with him” or “I would go to France if I had enough money.”


Activity Ideas:::

  • Note: many of the activities described for the first conditional can also be used for the second conditional, simply by changing the tenses.

1) If I Had a Million Dollars:

  1. Ask your learners what they would do if they had a million dollars.

  2. This could spur on a discussion of people’s fantasies.

  3. In order to solidify new vocabulary, you might want to brainstorm some ideas and write them down on the board.

  4. ii. Alternatively, you could play the song “If I had $1,000,000” by the bare naked ladies to introduce the structure and have your learners fill in missing lyrics. The lyrics can be found online at: www.fishertowne.com/Barenaked, go there and click on lyrics and “Rock Spectacular”.



              1. Three Wishes:

                1. Tell your student that they have three wishes and tell them to write them down: “I wish that I was rich” or simply “to be rich”

                2. Then, ask them to write down at least one reason why they wish what they do using the second conditional: “If I was rich, I would not have to work.”

                3. After this, there are a variety of things that you could do now; you could lead a discussion on peoples’ dreams, you could ask them to write a short paragraph about what people would do if their dreams came true, or you could do anything that would fit your class.




  1. Why might you....?

1. Give your students a list of improbable or immoral actions.

    • For example,

Why might you...

  1. ...jump out a window?

  1. ...steal something?

  1. ...take off your clothes in public? (for a more extensive list of possible actions, see page 80 of Grammar Practice Activities)

2. Ask your students to give reasons why they might do these things, using the second conditional.

  • For example, “I would steal something if I knew that someone stole it form me, but I could not prove it.”

3. From this point, you could have the students write more extensively on these topics or facilitate discussions, or do anything that suits your class.


  1. Learners could complete the following prompts:

- If I had a million dollars, I would/could . . .

- If I could change one thing in my neighborhood, I would . . .
