  1. First conditional: This type of conditional is used to describe a possible future event or situation, based on a present or future condition.
  • If it rains tomorrow, I will stay home.
  • If you finish your homework early, you can watch TV.
  1. Second conditional: This type of conditional is used to describe a hypothetical situation or event that is unlikely to happen.
