toeic grammar Feb 16, 2024


What are the 4 If Conditional sentences I need to know for TOEIC?

There are a variety of English grammar patterns that are tested on the TOEIC® exam. There are always questions related to if conditionals in Part V and Part VI.

We use if + present, present to talk about facts and situations that are usually true:

  • If it rains, I use an umbrella

We use if + present, future to talk about possibility in the future:

  • If it rains tomorrow, I will use an umbrella

We use if + past, would/could  to talk about imaginary and hypothetical situations:

  • If I won the lottery, I would buy a big house.

And finally, we use if + past perfect tense, would/could + present perfect to talk about imaginary and hypothetical situations:

  • If I had known about the exam, I would have studied.

👉 Keep in mind the best way to remember this grammar or any grammar or vocabulary in English is to take the word or phrase, write it in a sentence that's true for you or true in your world, and then memorize your sentences.

👉 You can even take your sentences and write them in the comments below. I would love to see your examples.
