    Conditional Sentences

    Hi,

    We all know "If it rains,I won't go to school tomorrow" sentence is correct.

    But is this one correct..?

    "If it rained,I wouldn't go to school tomorrow"..I think it's correct..But what is the difference of these two sentences..?

    Re: Conditional Sentences

    The first suggests there is a real possibility of rain. The second suggests a more hypothetical situation.
