Conditional Phrases Writing & Grammar

Hi everyone:

Today I want to talk about something you may have never heard of: conditional phrases. Let’s keep it short and sweet. These are also known as if-then phrases.

If you study, then it is more likely you will get a good grade.

If you smoke, then there will be a negative effect on your health.

If you do something, what do you think will happen to you? This is a simple way to explain how to phrase a conditional phrase. You use a simple present tense and add a simple future tense. You do this today and then this will happen later on.

Hope this helps your writing!
