This unit covers conditionals and reported speech.
There are five basic conditionals- zero conditional, the first conditional, the second conditional, the third (or past) conditional and mixed conditionals.
The unit breaks them down, gives there forms and explains there uses.
What's important to understand about conditionals is that in English, when talking about a conditional event it can be either a real possible event or an unreal (or imagined)event.
Zero and first conditionals both describe real possible events. The second and third conditional describe unreal or imagined events.
When we talk about a mixed conditional - it is describing a conditional where the two clauses are not happening at the same time but are from mixed times -e.g. past and present: If he had worked harder, he would be a rich man now.
The unit gives some ideas about how to teach conditionals before moving onto reported speech.
Reported speech is direct speech that is reported back. It is created by moving the tense of the verb back in time. Jane said, "I like apples" becomes Jane said that she liked apples. It's not quite as simple as that and the unit provides a table for which tense changes to which tense when reporting direct speech. The unit also goes on to point out possible errors students make -particularly with reporting time expressions.
