This time in our structure help we continue to talk about conditional sentences. This time we’re talking about the second conditional. Similar to the zero and first conditionals, it has two parts, an ‘if’ part and the ‘other part’. You can change the order of these two parts without changing the meaning of the sentence. In the second conditional, the ‘if part’ has a low chance of happening or is impossible. The speaker chooses the appropriate conditional form based on their understanding of the certainly of the situation happening. Check out the diagram below for more information and examples, then try to write some sentences of your own.
