In French, the structure of the sentence is almost the same as in English. For instance, the verb agreement is exactly the same.
English: If + subject + verb (preterite) + direct object, subject + verb (present conditional) + direct object.
French: Si + subject + verb (imparfait) + direct object, subject + verb (present conditional) + direct object.
Examples: If you liked French, I would try to help you. => Si tu aimais le Français, j'essayerais de t'aider.
If I came back home too late, I would sleep in the garden. => Si je rentrais trop tard à la maison, je dormirais dans le jardin.
Note: As in English, you can invert the two clauses. Furthermore, 'S'il' or 'S'ils' are clipped: 'S'il' or 'S'ils'.
Example: S'il aimait le Français, je l'aiderais. => Je l'aiderais s'il aimait le Français.
If he liked French, I would help him. => I would help him if he liked French.
It's your turn.
