RULES & PRACTICE

The worksheet starts with a short discussion about projects. The idea of the worksheet is to show a real-life situation when mixed conditionals might be naturally used. We chose a final project meeting as a situation which presents the use of such structures.

First, students discuss a few questions and then they read a short dialogue. While reading, they need to underline all conditional sentences. Next, they study a table with the sentences and have to choose the correct words (present or past) in the rules section. Make sure that your students understand how to use mixed conditionals and build sentences with them. To practise, students move to another exercise and complete some sentences with the correct form of the given verbs.

SPEAKING

The speaking part consists of two tasks. First, students need to rephrase a few sentences using mixed conditionals. There is an example which should help them understand what they need to do. In the next task, you give your students cards with sentence beginnings. Students have to choose one, finish the sentence so that it is a mixed conditional sentence and continue the story by giving two or three more sentences. Then, they choose another card and repeat the process.
