    if/when

    Dear teachers?

    I wonder what is the difference between (1) and (2).

    (1), If I was sick, my grandmother would take care of me.
    (2), When I was sisk, my grandmother would take care of me.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: if/when

    Here, there isn't much difference. 'When' can be more certain, but not really in this case. If you were frequently ill, 'when' might be better.
