Primer condicional: situaciones que vemos muy probables:(If + present simple, will + infinitive)If you wash the dishes, I’ll clean the living room.If she asks me, I’ll help her.If you marry him, he’ll be very happy.El segundo condicional puede hablar de las mismas situaciones, pero los vemos menos probables de ocurrir, por lo tanto la segunda parte de la frase es también improbable:(If + past simple, would + infinitive)If I you washed the dishes, I’d clean the living room. (I don’t really expect you to wash the dishes.)If she asked me, I’d help her. (It’s improbable that she’ll ask me.)If you married him, he’d be very happy. (You don’t intend to marry him.)El segundo condicional puede hablar tambien de situaciones puramente hipotéticas:If I were taller, I’d be a profesional basketball player. (In fact I’m only 1.83m.)If I had more time, I would learn Arabic. (But I work 60 hours a week.)Podemos hacer las frases condicionales de las dos siguientes maneras:If he lived in Paris, he would study art. He would study art if he lived in Paris.If he earned a better salary, he would move to the suburbs.He would move to the suburbs if he earned a better salary.
