Exercise 3: Rewriting Conditionals
How can you express these ideas using conditional constructions?
Write your answers in the boxes and click 'submit' to see a possible answer for each question. There are many possible answers.
You may use I or you in your sentence, and choose the tense you prefer. Would any of these conditional sentences work, and mean the same, with a word other than if? Possible answers are given after each question, together with a reference to a number from the conditionals chart which gives more detail about the type of conditional used.
