    Present Simple

    We use the Present Simple for

    habits and routines: I goto the tennis club everyMonday. The tennis coach doesnt workhere in thewinter.

    facts: You becomea teenager when you are thirteen.DoBritish people haveID cards?

    generalisations: Lots of young people aresportsfans. Teenagers often arguewith their parents.

    State verbs (seem,like,feeletc.) are usually in thePresent Simple:

    You seem interested in photography.

    Do you prefer colour or black and white?

    Adverbs of frequency (occasionally, often,never,alwaysetc.) with the Present Simple show how oftenthings happen. We put them

    before a main verb: He occasionally goes to rockconcerts.

    after to be: She isoftenat home on Sundayevenings.

    between auxiliary (e.g. can,do,have) and main

    verbs: We dontusually go to away games. You canalways geta taxi at the station.

    Present Continuous

    We use the Present Continuous for

    things which are happening now: Im makinga poster for the school chess club now.Shesnot sleeping, you can go in.

    temporary situations: At the moment, hes workingfor a charity. Areyou stayingwith your parents untilterm starts?

    changing situations: More people are joining

    internet forums these days. Isthe chess clubbecomingless popular?

    Time expressions (now, these days, at the momentetc.) usually go at the beginning or end of thesentence.

    Zero, First and Second conditionals with if

    With all conditional sentences:

    One thing must happen (condition) before the second can happen(result).

    There are two clauses (parts): the if clause tells you the conditionand the other part tells you the result.

    Either clause can be first. We use a comma when the ifclause isfirst.

    There can be a mix of positive and negative verbs in the twoclauses.

    We use the Zero Conditional (if condition and result: Present Simple)to talk about conditions which are always true:

    She always takesher dog to the beach if itssunny.

    Dodogs barkif they arefrightened?

    We use the First Conditional(if condition: Present Simpleresult:will +infinitive) to talk about conditions that are possible or likely tohappen:

    Ifwe leave the dog alone all day, it willdestroythe furniture.

    Ifwebuy you a cat, will youlook after it?

    We use the Second Conditional (ifcondition: Past Simpleresult:would+ infinitive) for unlikely or impossible situations in the presentor future:

    Id besurprised ifmy parents boughtme a pet. They both hateanimals.

    If youwent on a safari, wherewould yougo?

    Note If he were my son, Id send him to college. = If he was myson, Id send him to college.but its more formal. However, when thefunction is to give advice, we normally use the fixed phrase, If I wereyou, Id

    Other conditional clauses

    As soon asor whenboth mean at that time. We use them for

    conditions that are definitely going to happen: As soon ashearrives, well have dinner. Well have dinner whenhe arrives.

    As long as and provided thatboth mean if the condition is agreedor met. We use them to stress the condition on which somethinghappens:As long asyou need me, Ill stay here.You can get a dog provided (that)it sleeps in the kitchen.

    Unlessis used instead of if + a negative statement. It means if thecondition doesnt happen or isnt met:Unlessyou turn off the light, the baby wont sleep.

    Mind the trap!

    The First Conditional ifclause is about the future, but wealways use the Present Simple, not will.

    If we goaway NOT If we will go away

    1 Match actions 16 with results af.Write the Zero Conditional sentenceswith if+ it.

    look after a dog properly c

    1 put oil on water c

    2 a bee stings you c

    3 crocodile loses a tooth c

    Verb patterns

    When we use two verbs together, the first verb is in theappropriate tense, the second verb doesnt change.

    Present Simple: We liketo cook.

    Past Simple: We likedto cook.

    In addition, the first verb often decides the form of the secondone. The examples below show examples of different verbpatterns.

    Verb + -ing

    admit, avoid, cant stand, dont mind, enjoy, fancy,hate, imagine, keep, miss, practise, stop


    Verb + preposition/phrasal verb + -ing

    apologise for, dream about, feel like, give up, lookforward to, think about


    to be + adjective + preposition + -ing

    bebad at, bored by, famous for, good at,interested in, proud of, sorry for, tired of


    Verb + to+ infinitive

    agree, allow, choose, decide, expect,

    hope, learn, manage, need, offer, promise,refuse, seem, want, would like, manage

    to make(something)

    Verb + object + to+ infinitive

    allow him, ask her, help me, persuade them, tell us to leave

    Verb + object + infinitive (without to)

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    A I am writing to complain about the laptop computer which I bought through your online shop and about your customer service.

    B I ordered the computer on July 15thand my credit card was charged immediately but

    the computer did not arrive until August 17th, more than a month later, although your website

    guarantees delivery within one week. When the computer arrived the box had a hole in it, the

    keyboard was scratched and the power cable was missing. I immediately phoned your helpline and

    was told that I would have to pay for sending the computer back if I wanted a refund.

    C I am not satisfied with this service. I do not feel that it is acceptable that I have to pay for the

    postage because it is clearly your fault that the computer arrived in this state. I suggest that in

    future you package your goods more carefully before you send them, and that you make sure you

    keep your promises about delivering orders quickly.

    D I would like either a replacement computer or a full refund as soon as possible, and I expect

    you to pay for the courier to return the damaged computer.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,

    Jenny Park
