If clause-Type 2

First click on the start button and then click (anywhere on the slide) one by one to see the sentences.
This work is prepared to show how type 2 is used in real life. This can be used as a post activity after presenting the grammar point. Or anyhow as you wish. With this video students can see why we use type-2 and for what. Let the students think about the sceenes each characters experience. For example, the first characters; a man in a tree, he's triying to chop the branch he is standing on. A boy who is coming from fishing sees the man and says "If I were you, I wouldn't do this". So here there is an unreal situation in the boy's sentence. In fact he is not the man on the branch. So have the students think about this and ask them "Is what the boy says real or unreal." After watching the video, encourage the students make their own sentences. "What was the time when they said "if I were somebody else" and what was the situation. At the end of the video, again students will be asked; "What would you do if you had a magic wand?" İ. Gürkan BOZKURT

if clause / type 1

This activity can be given as pre, while or post activity to present conditionals type1. To connect the grammar point with the students' lives, I tried to involve their real problems into the video... Hakan is studying and his family gives him motivations by using "if clause/type 1. But the members of the family say different things to him. And Hakan feels quite confused. At the end I ask the students if they live something similar with Hakan's. Then I ask a question; "What are the ifs that you always hear your family." İ. Gürkan BOZKURT
