    If I understood the different if-clauses...

    What are if-clauses?

    If-clauses are conditional clauses .


    Meaning:
    The happening in the main clause (clause without the if) can only take place when the condition is fulfilled in the if clause.

    The difference between type 1 & type 2
    If clause type 1

    It is possible and very probable for the described situation to happen.

    Structure: if + simple present, will- future
    (will+ infinitive)


    Example: If I study everyday, I will pass all my exams.


    If clause type 2

    It is possible but rather unlikely for the described situation to happen.
    Structure: if + simple past, conditional 1 (=would + infinitive)

    Example: If I studied everyday, I would pass all my exams.

    Notice: The main clause can also stand in the begining !

    Example: I will pass all my exams if I study everyday.

    Example: I would pass all my exams if I studied everyday.
