Today we will learn about express conditions.
We can explain a condition by expressing factual implications, hypothetical situations and their consequences.
There are many ways to express conditions.
Here’s some examples of common words we can use to expressing conditions.
1. If: used to define a condition or supposition.
E.g. “Get out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat.”
2. In case: as a provision against something.
E.g. “I’m worried about washing that shirt in case it shrinks.”
3. Unless: except the condition that.
E.g. “Don’t call me unless it is a real emergency.”
4. So that: indicates purpose.
E.g. “Please speak up so that the people at the back of the room can hear you.”
5. Whether: expressing a doubt or choice.
E.g. “I really don’t know whether to be happy or sad here today.”
6. Otherwise: in circumstances different from those present.
E.g. “Shut the window, otherwise it’ll get too cold in here.
7. Or else: used to define another option or possibility.
