Listeners, what's the first drink you reach for when you're parched? Try telling us in Greek! If your favourite beverage wasn't covered in the lesson, ask us and we'll help you out :).

Hi Bibiana,


Conditionals in Greek is not something I can easily explain in the comment section. However, there is a special lesson that will be published very soon that it will be explaining Greek conditionals very, very thoroughly. It's going to be lesson 24 in the Upper Intermediate series.


The categorisation in Greek is different from English, so we don't have 1st, 2nd and so on. We only have the "real" and the "unreal". But here's the thing: in Greek schools, we never go deeply into conditionals (unlike when we learn English!) I think it was something we briefly learned about in high school in one of the syntax lessons (as a type of clause), not grammar lessons. That's why a lot of grammar books and teaching methods of Greek don't mention anything about conditionals.


To give you an idea of what WE learn in school about conditionals, is just these notes (taken from my school book):

It's very difficult to comprehend and it doesn't really examine the grammar at all.


The lesson that will be published here on GreekPod101.com was made after a lot of effort and research in order to present conditionals in a way that can be comprehensive for a non-native, with grammar (tenses and verb forms) that are being used and a lot of examples, so that the student can understand how to even form a hypothetical sentence in the first place (something we DO NOT learn in Greece!) So I strongly recommend you to wait a little and then do the lesson. It's going to be very helpful, I guarantee you!

Stefania,


Reading your comment here I remembered something... Could you explain me (if its not a big problem for you) the conditionals in Greek? Or if you have it somewhere just tell me where can I find it... or in another page... I mean what is the 1st and 2nd conditional in English... how to form and use them in Greek? I only know that for the 2nd conditional we use θα and the past tense (I think the aorist form) just as in English - θα ήθελα, θα μου άρεσε.. I would want, I would like... but I dont know what to you after if... Sometimes I want to say a conditional sentence, but I dont know how...


Thank you so much!
