Transcript of Zero & First Conditional

ZERO CONDITIONAL
We use the so-called
zero conditional
when the result of the condition is
always true
, like a scientific fact.

Take some ice. Put it in a saucepan. Heat the saucepan. What happens? The ice melts (it becomes water). You would be surprised if it did not.
ZERO CONDITIONAL*
FIRST CONDITIONAL*
The
first conditional
describes a
particular situation
, whereas the
zero conditional
describes what happens
in general.

For example (zero conditional):
if you sit in the sun, you get burned
(here I'm talking about every time a person sits in the sun - the burning is a natural consequence of the sitting)

But (first conditional):
if you sit in the sun, you'll get burned
(here I'm talking about what will happen today, another day might be different)
ZERO & FIRST CONDITIONAL
IF YOU HEAT ICE, IT MELTS.
* The important thing about the
zero conditional
is that the
condition always has
the
same result.
FIRST CONDITIONAL
It's used to talk about things which
might happen
in the future. Of course, we can't know what will happen in the future, but this describes
possible things
, which could easily
come true.

*The important thing about the
first conditional
is that there is
a

real possibility
that the
condition
will happen.
FIRST
VS.
