Clarification (7-8 minutes) • To model and introduce meaning of the second conditional sentences.

T deletes the main clause that one of the Ss had wrote and asks Ss guess how can we complete the sentence. T posts 3 pictures on the wall and asks Ss to guess about the pictures. Ss guess the the sentence and write the full sentence on the WB ( If I won 50 million dollars, I would buy a new car). T asks CCQs to clarify the topic of the second condit: Did he win 50 million dollars? No. Is he really going to buy a car? No. Is it reality or just imagination? Imagination. T elicits the modal. - If clause sentence consists from two parts if clause and main clause. - If the if clause comes at the first part of the sentence, we will put a comma before the main clause but if it comes in the second part, we will not put a comma. - Second conditional is used to talk about imagination. - We can use I were instead of I was if the speaker is imagining what it would be like. It is often used to give advice but it is less formal. Ss give examples.
