TESOL Videos - Do TEFL Teachers Need a Second Language?
This unit takes us through Conditionals and reported speech. There are 5 conditionals: -Zero conditional (general/usual): If you don't sleep, you get tired. -First conditional (real/possible): If it rains, I will stay at home. -Second conditional (unreal/hypothetical): If I won the competition, I would go on holiday. -Third conditional (didn't happen): If I had practiced, I would have won. -Mixed conditional (present imagining of the past): If I had won, I would be famous now. The unit then takes us through reported speech. This is when we take direct speech (Jane said, "We are going to study tomorrow."), and transform it into reported speech (Jane said they were studying the following day.) The unit also gives us the various tenses for changing from direct speech to reported speech, as well as looking at the time changes.
