Practice with Future, Real Conditional

"Mystery and Melancholy of a Street"
by Giorgio de Chirico

The Future, Real Conditional uses a Condition Clause and a Result Clause. The Condition Clause may begin with "If" or "Unless". The Condition Clause is in the present tense. The Result Clause is in the future tense. Other modals besides "will" may be used, such as "might" or "can" or "must". Don't forget to use a capital letter at the beginning of the sentence and a period at the end. Otherwise, the "Capital Letter" cop and the "Period" cop will get on your case.

A: ______ should/shouldn't __________.
B: Why?
A: If ______ , ___ will ___________ .

1. John should exercise more.

2. Mary should marry Bob.

3. They should go to the sale.

4. We shouldn't oversleep.

5. She shouldn't worry too much.

6. You shouldn't drink too much beer.

7. They should go to bed early.

8. June should break up with Steve.

11. Steve should pay his rent.

12. Ivan should brush his teeth.

13. Moses should get out of Egypt.

14. You shouldn't eat that mushroom.

15. Wally should dance with my sister.

17. Hanna shouldn't tell the boss off.

18. The company shouldn't expand too fast.

19. The waiters shouldn't be too slow.

  1. The mind is a great philosopher. And life is not a philosophy, life is a reality. And philosophy is an escape from reality; philosophy means thinking. Life is, there is no question of thought. You can simply jump into it. You can simply experience it. Visit my site for more information.Thank you.
