Students will be able to
- use the second conditional in the affirmative, negative, and interrogative forms to talk about situations that are very unlikely or impossible,
- form the second conditional using a clause with “if + past simple” and a clause with “would + the base form of the verb” (e.g., If I won the lottery, I would buy a new car),
- understand that the if clause can be the first or second clause (e.g., If I got the job, I would be happy/I would be happy If I got the job),
- understand that when the if clause is first, a comma is used before the second clause, but when the if clause is second, a comma is not used (e.g., If you liked football, I would invite you to the match/I would invite you to the match if you liked football),
- understand that might or might not can be used instead of would to show that you are unsure of the outcome,
- understand that could can be used instead of would to show ability,
- understand that could not can be used instead of would not to show inability.
