Present Unreal Conditionals

Unread postby myvidentity » 19 Apr 2014, 21:11

Hello fellow teachers,

I teach English as a foreign language to 12/13 year old students. For my students, learning present unreal conditional is very difficult, they just can't figure it out. Although, they are aware that only its from is in the past, they keep mixing it up with present real conditional sentences and mostly using will instead of would in the result clause.
Please help me out!
Thank you

Mohammad

Mohammad,

This is normal for students who are just learning the different forms of the conditional. they just need lots and lots of practice and correction from the teacher and each other

Happy to find this thread. I have similar issues with Present Unreal Conditionals and my 8 year old kids. I will appreciate any tips!
