Past Conditional – Exercise

Hello everyone,

and welcome back to the if-est series ever… the series on Conditional. It’s been quite the journey. We learned what the heck I mean by conditional, we learned about the würde-conditional and the real conditional and when to use which. We learned about the past conditional and that there’s a simple system with two to four easy steps… depending on how you count. We went down the abyss of Past Conditional with modal verbs in sentences that have their verb at the end. And we came back out, with entirely new insights.
But now, the learning is done. Now it is time for the showdown.
Brabbabbbabbammmmm.
Us and what we’ve learned vs. dozens of sentences. One more ferocious than the next. But all vicious and full of guile, constantly looking to throw us a curve. Beat us. Break our brains and our spirits. But we shall not falte…
“Erm… we get it, Emanuel. Could we get going already, we don’t have that much time.”
Oh sure sure… ladies and gentlemen.. get ready for the epic

Past Conditional Workout

If you haven’t read the other parts of the series, you can of course give it a try. But if you want to read them first or you want to review them, then here are the links:

Conditional 1: Overview + würde conditional
Conditional 2: Real conditional (how and when)
Conditional 3: Work out (also epic, but not as epic as what we’re about to do)
Conditional 4: Past Conditional
Conditional 5: Past Conditional With Modals

And now I’d say let’s jump right in….

Conditional in German – Work Out

Hello everyone,

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
**intense** #flatabs 

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!!)

Conditional Pt. 1 – An Overview

Conditional Pt. 2 – The Real Conditional

Of course you can also try this exercise, if you haven’t read the articles. But don’t whine if you fail.
Cool.

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 :)
