This lesson will focus on adding as many effects as possible to a piece of evidence. Doing this will help you make a logical link between evidence and outcomes.
During your speaking test, you can be creative when it comes to the effects of your evidence.
Imagine a young student asks, "Why should I study hard?" You might respond by saying:
If you study hard now, then you'll do well on your tests, and you'll likely get into a good university. Then a good education will lead to a good job, and a good job will help you lead a rich, happy life. That's why you should study hard!
Discuss this question with your teacher:
Describe a moment when your life changed forever.
A. Start with a quick practice making sentences using "if". Your instructor will guide you through a short exercise called, "What will happen if..."
B. Now that you are comfortable using "if", add as many roll-on effects as possible to answer the question from the Warm Up.
Answer these abstract questions, using "if" at least twice in every question.
