‘If’ can be used at the beginning of a sentence or in the middle of a sentence.

  • If you don’t clean your room, you’re now allowed to go out.
  • If you don’t eat breakfast, you’ll be hungry.
  • If you don’t drink water, you will feel dehydrated.
  • If my phone rings, answer the call.
  • If we go to Liverpool on the train, it will be quicker than going in the car.
  • If they don’t hurry up, we’re all going to be late.
  • Order some food If you’re hungry.
  • We’ll miss the train If you take your time getting ready.
  • We’re going to be late for school tomorrow If you wake up late again.
  • I’m going on holiday If I get a good deal.
  • I’m taking my nieces to the cinema If their mum allows me.
  • I’ll give you five pounds If you clean my room for me.

 

Sometimes we use the ‘If…’ part of the sentence alone.

If we go... If you see... etc-example1

 

After if, we use the present

More examples with ‘if…’:

  • if you see Gemma, can you tell her that I’m looking for her. (see is the present, you don’t say if you will see)
  • if I’m late to school, please can you tell the teacher it’s because there’s loads of traffic.
  • if I wake up early, we can go to Manchester on the train.
  • if I feel better tomorrow, then I will come to Susie’s party.
  • if I have to babysit my brother on Saturday, I won’t be able to go to Kate’s sleepover.
  • What shall we do if it rains?
  • if it rains, are we still going out?
  • if you behave, I will buy you a new game.

 

If and when

  • if I go out… = It is possible that I will go out , but I’m not sure
  • When I go out… = I’m going out for sure

Example:

  • If I go out, I will clean my room.
  • When I go out, I will clean my room.

 

Comparing ‘if’ and ‘when’

  • When I come back from football, I’m going to have a hot shower.
  • When we go out tomorrow, I’m going to buy a new pair of sunglasses.
  • if the bus comes and I’m not there, don’t wait for me. (not when the bus come…)
  • if the weather is nice on the weekend, we’ll take the kids to the park. (not when the weather…)
  • We’re going to drive to Paris if it doesn’t snow. (not when it doesn’t snow…)
  • We’re going to meet up with Emma if we go to Blackpool.
