I am on an island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. I've been here for a week. I lost my watch in the sea so I don't know what time it is. Going on that cruise was the worst thing I've ever done. I'm not a good swimmer so I couldn't reach the lifeboat when the ship sank. I've thought about making a raft to sail away from the island, but I don't know which way to go. There is no one to talk to here. I feel so lonely! I haven't got a walkman so I can't listen to music. The only thing to eat is fish and I don't like fish! I didn't bring a knife with me so I can't build a shelter. I hope someone will find me soon!
The students in two teams read the text and in turn make Conditionals. Each correct sentence gets 1 point.
One night Paul was bored so he decided to go to the cinema. But the cinema was full because the film was very popular. Paul's friend lives near the cinema so he went to visit him. When he arrived, he heard his friend shouting for help. The door was open so Paul was able to get into the house. His friend has been painting and had fallen off the step-ladder. His leg was broken so he couldn't move. It was lucky that the cinema was full and Paul called round on him.
Teacher: If Paul hadn't been bored, he wouldn't have decided to go to the cinema.
Team A S1: If the film hadn't been popular, the cinema wouldn't have been full. etc.
