Juego de las condicionales

This game is good to revise and practise structures in the first conditional.
The teacher begins with a sentence, for example 'If I go out tonight, I’ll go to the cinema.' The next person in the circle must use the end of the previous sentence to begin their own sentence, for example 'If I go to the cinema, I’ll watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.' The next person could say, 'If I watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I’ll eat lots of chocolate.' Then, 'If I eat lots of chocolate, I’ll put on weight.' etc.

If I drink coffee,
I’ll stay awake tonight
If I stay awake tonight,
I’ll fall asleep in the morning.
And if I fall asleep in the morning,
My teacher will be very angry.

Second conditional

This is a simple game for spoken practice of the third conditional.
Ask a student, a volunteer hopefully, to leave the room. While that person is out of the room you and the rest of the class decide on something very unusual that could have happened while they were out of the room. A good example is two students get married, the OHP explodes, basically whatever the students can suggest.
Then, the person who has left the room comes back in and asks each student in turn only one question and the full question is 'What would you have done if this had happened?'
And each student in turn answers in a full sentence for example, 'If this had happened, I would have bought some flowers'.
Now, they mustn't mention the names of anyone involved because at the end the student who is guessing has to work out what happened to whom and, if they can't, you can go round again with new answers.
[As this is for speaking practice, the students should use the contracted form for the conditional grammar - 'If this'd happened, I'd 've bought some flowers.']

Songs are great for teaching or revising conditionals.
My favorites are:
  • If I were a boy (Beyonce)
  • If I had a Million Dollars (the BarenakedLadies)
  • Smile (Charlie Chaplin)
  • Time After Time (Cyndi Lauper)
  • Hero (Enrique Iglasias)
  • Count on me (Bruno Mars)
  • California Dreaming (The mamas and Papas)
