Task 1:Watch the following scene of The Starnge Case of Benjamin Button. Count how many times the word “if” is pronounced and write the conditional sentences you were able to identify in the form of a post.
Task 2: Now write a short account describing a terribly bad day you have had. Include at least four examples of conditional sentences type 3 regretting the decisions you have made that day. Once you finish writing the account, post it in your blogs.
1)There we’re 2 if pronounced in the video.
Here are all the conditional sentences I could found: And if only one thing had happened differently, if that shoelace hadn’t broken, or that delivery truck had moved moments earlier, or that package had been wrapped and ready, because the girl hadn’t broken up with her boyfriend, or that man had set his alarm and got up five minutes earlier, or that taxi driver hadn’t stopped for a cup of coffee, or that woman had remembered her coat, and got into an earlier cab, Daisy and her friend would’ve crossed the street, and the taxi would’ve driven by.
2) Today I have had the worst day if my life. If I hadn’t woken with my left foot it wouldn’t had happened. If I hadn’t eaten so much food yesterday, I wouldn’t had had a stomachache. And if I hadn’t played football, I wouldn’t had broken my knee or if I hadn’t gone to the party last night, I wouldn’t had had a hangover.
Now I am in the hospital feeling so much pain I can’t even talk to anyone.
Task 1: The word “if” is pronounced a total of 7 times in the following sentences:
“If only one thing had happened differently”
“If that shoelace hadn’t broken”
“If that delivery truck had moved moments earlier”
“If that package had been wrapped and ready because the girl hadn’t broken up with her boyfriend”
“If that man had set his alarm and got up five minutes earlier”
“If that taxi driver hadn’t stopped for a cup of coffee”
“If that woman had remembered her coat and gotten to an earlier cab”
“Diasy and her friend would have crossed the street and the taxi would have driven by”
Task 2: My luck was bad that day from the minute I woke up. It was 8AM and I was supposed to have woken up at 7AM. School had already started so I didn’t even eat breakfast, I went sprinting to school. When I arrived, I was late, of course, so I signed the late book and went on my way to class. If I had remembered to set my alarm the night before, I wouldn’t have been late to school. When I arrived in maths class, everyone was correcting their homework. My heart sunk. I had forgotten to do my homework, as I had been watching netflix all night last night because a new season of my favourite show had just come out. If the new season of my favourite show hadn’t come out last night, I would have done my homework and I wouldn’t have gotten in trouble. After maths class, it was lunch time. I got in line, ordered my food, and went to pay. I reached into my pocket, and my lunch money wasn’t there. I had forgotten it as I had been in such a rush this morning. I wouldn’t have forgotten my lunch money and I would have been able to eat lunch If I had woken up earlier and had more time to prepare my things. After a few more classes, it was finally time to go home, marking the end of my suffering, or so I thought. There were 2 routes I could take home; the long route, or the short route, which was much more dangerous than the longer one, however, I was extremely tired and I wanted to get home as fast as I could, so, I took the short route. I was about half way home when suddenly, a giant dog comes out from behind the bushes and starts charging at me. I just stood there, frozen, not knowing what to do, so the dog came up to me and bit me with all his might. I then made a run for it and eventually outran the dog. I wouldn’t have been bit by the dog if I had taken the longer route.
Hi! Can we invent in case we haven’t had such a bad day ever?
Yes, you can invent.
