If - Using the First Conditional

Average: 4.2 (25 votes)

"If it is sunny, we will go camping."

The first conditional...

  • Talks about future events that are likely to happen.
  • Is formed by using If + present simple + will/going to/modal verb + verb.
  • Can start with the 'if' clause or the 'future' clause.
  • Can be made negative by using 'won't'.

Here's some examples of the first conditional, but only half of the sentences are correct. Can you decide which half, A or B, makes a correct first conditional sentence? Good luck!
