Future Real Conditionals | English Grammar Book

Future real Conditionals are also known as first conditionals. The future real conditional expresses a cause or condition and the possible effect. Future real conditionals indicate if or when this happens, that will or could possibly occur. Unlike other real conditionals, future conditionals express what may happen. You do not know what will happen in the future, but you are guessing what could happen or most likely will happen.

Future Real Conditionals

Future real conditionals make conditional statements then show what could happen. Sentences use "if" to make a statement then expresses a possible result. Sentences use "when" to make a statement then express a result that is likely to happen. "If" or "when" can be used to start off a sentence or be used to join two clauses.
