Imagine someone gave you the 7002334-nino-pequeno-durmiendo-en-la-cama-y-sonar-con-el-avion-cute-nino-pequeno-durmiendo-en-la-cama-con-elchance to visit another country, where would you go?

 
If I had the chance to choose, I would visit Australia.
 
If I was allowed to choose another one, I would also visit Canada.

To start a conditional sentence, we always use  IF and the sentences follow a special pattern (padrão)

If it’s a probable condition, we use Type 1.

  • If you go to Australia, you will have to travel for 18 hours.
  • If you choose Canada, you will fly for 6 hours.

If it’s an improbable condition, we use Type 2.

  • If I had enough money, I would stay there for 6 months.
  • If I could, I would visit both countries.
