Conditional Sentences (Conditional Clauses, If Clauses) are used to express that the action in the main clause can only take place if a certain condition is fulfilled.
The zero conditional describes situations that are always true. Example: If I go to school, I get up at seven.
If-clause at the beginning:
If I study, I will pass the exam.
If-clause at the end:
I will pass the exam if I study.
If I study, I will not fail the exam.
