First conditional conversation questions

In English, we use the first conditional tense to talk about what will happen in the future if a certain situation or event occurs. When you discuss these first conditional conversation questions, you are asking what will happen if a condition is met in the future.

This speaking activity will help English learners with this particular area of grammar and also their general discussion skills.

After completing the questions, learners are to create 6 new ones of their own from the provided picture prompts. This should be fairly straightforward but if you see students having difficulty, don’t be afraid to step in with some assistance.

For ESL learners, the most challenging terms in this first exercise include – scholarship, typhoon, hurricane, drop, wallet, invite, improve, lottery, bump into, borrow, lend, pass time, and stuck.
