If-sentences/Mixed Exercises

Aus ZUM-Unterrichten
Wechseln zu: Navigation, Suche

Die If-Sätze Typ I und Typ II lassen sich nicht eindeutig unterscheiden, da man einerseits fest mit einem (doch eher unwahrscheinlichen) Lottogewinn rechnet, andererseits z.B. Regen und schlechtes Wetter nicht 100% voraus berechnen kann. Sätze, die sich auf die Vergangeheit beziehen, sind immer Typ 3.

Beispiele:

If it rains, I will stay at home.

If I were you, I wouldn't go out today.

If I had known that, I would have stayed at home.

Nachdem Du dich auf einen Typ festgelegt hast, muss das Schema konsequent durchgehalten werden.

if-clause main-clause
Typ I simple present will +inf
Typ II simple past would + inf
Typ III past perfect
had + 3.Form
would + have + 3.Form
