However, did you also know that there are mixed conditionals?
Watch this lesson to learn how to use mixed conditionals. Oh, I have an interesting Bitcoin story for you too 😀
EXAMPLES OF REGULAR CONDITIONALS:
Zero Conditional: I get tired when I eat too much
1st Conditional: If it rains, we won’t go to the party
2nd Conditional: I would do it if I had more time
3rd Conditional: I would have done it if I had more time
The most common mixed conditional is when a past action affects a present result (hypothetical).
In the video, I explained how I nearly bought Bitcoin in 2011. I didn’t buy Bitcoin but I had bought it, then it would be worth $1.5 million today.
Here are more examples:
- If I hadn’t met my wife in Ecuador, I wouldn’t be living in America now
- If he had listened during English class, he would have a higher level now
- If I weren’t going to that wedding, I would have gone out last night (future action affecting a past result)
- If I were more outgoing, I would have asked her out (present condition affecting a past result)
Don’t feel like you have to use mixed conditionals just because they are advanced. Instead, use them in the right situations.
I hope you found this useful. If you did, please share it with your friends. Thank you for watching!
