Conditionals Type 1

In order to construct conditional clauses, which are sentences formed with an if clause, the main clause and if clause are needed. Each sentence has its verb and meaning. Since conditionals have more than one type, you should know which tenses to use in these sentences and use these tenses according to the meaning of the sentence.


How to Use Conditionals Type 1

All conditional statements show us a possible condition and the possible outcome of this condition. Conditional Type 1 sentences are used to express a possibility that may happen in the future, although it is not certain that these possibilities will occur, it is possible and this possibility depends on the fulfillment of the condition.

When constructing a Conditionals Type 1 sentence, the sentence structure in the if clause sentence should be Present Tense, and the main clause sentence should be established with Simple Future Tense. However, although the Simple Future Tense has the patterns of “be going to” and “will”, we need to use “will” since it is not possible to form a planned sentence in these sentences.

I will tell her where her boyfriend is if I see her.

I will buy a house in the game if I have enough game money.

Can you write a message to me if you see Alexander?

You will pass your exams if you study enough.


Important Notes About Conditionals Type 1

If your sentence starts with an if clause, you should not forget to put a comma after the if clause and add the sentence after it. If your sentence starts with the main sentence, you do not need to use a comma after this sentence.

If you lose the match, you will be angry. / You will be angry if you lose the match.

If you do not love me, I will not be upset. / I will not be upset if you do not love me.


If you want to use modal patterns, you can easily use these patterns both in sentences that start with if and in main sentences. If you want, you can use both at the same time or you can use it in a single part, it is completely up to you.
