IELTS Grammar: some conditionals

Did you notice that I used several conditional sentences in yesterday's speaking lesson? Here they are again:

  • But if I had to choose, I'd say the living room...
  • ...so that's what I'd change first.
  • I'd definitely move again at some point if I could afford to.

Notice that I use I'd instead of the full I would because these are spoken answers (although it's fine to say I would).

Notice also that the 'if' conditional clause is missing from the second example. Sometimes we miss the condition because it is understood from the context. We understand from the context that I mean: "If I redecorated my home, that's what I would change first".
