and welcome back to our mini series on Conditional in German. And if you thought you’re just gonna calmly sit there and read something then you’re gravely mistaken.
Because today, we’ll hit the gym and do this:
Non Past Conditional – XFit Full Body Workout
In part one and two we’ve learned about the non-past conditional and today we’ll put that into practice.
If you haven’t read part one and two, you can find them here (and no, part one isn’t “just” and overview. You need it!!)
Of course you can also try this exercise, if you haven’t read the articles. But don’t whine if you fail.
So here’s what we’ll do:
I’ll give you a “normal” statement in German and you’ll have to take it and make it into a statement with Conditional.
The main part of that is of course making the right choice between Real Conditional and würde-Conditional and putting it into the sentence correctly.
- Wenn ich Hunger habe, esse ich. (When I am hungry, I eat.)
- Wenn ich Hunger hätte, würde ich essen. (If I were hungry, I’d eat.)
But there are a few more difficulties in there.
Uhm… hooray :)
