I have a student who I give private lessons to. We just started this week and she mainly wants to work on her conversation skills.
She has said to me that for the next lesson she wants to practice conditionals. She says she knows the structures when writing but that it gets all mixed up in her head when speaking. So she wants to practice the conditionals through speaking only.
Has anyone got any ideas of speaking activities to practice the conditionals on a one-to-one basis? I've already thought of doing conditional chains but as you know that will last all of five minutes
Any and all ideas are most welcome
Thanks in advance

Dear Moon Unit,
You could have some form of negotiation with your student. This could take the form of a client and supplier or manufacturer. You can then discuss terms using language such as: “if you place an order for more than 50 items, I won’t charge for delivery”.
