    Post tense

    is this correct?

    If they would look at your I.D. and they saw that your an education student, they would be proud of you.

    Okay, I'll take the easy one. A person will only be proud of you if that person is at least acquainted with you. Thus, a person who has just learned that you are an education student (or education major as they say in college) might be impressed, but won't be proud of you.

    Hi!

    If they look at your ID and they see that you're an education student, they will be impressed.

    Hi!
    If you mean the clauses with simple present and present perfect tenses put together into one sentence then I have one: She says (that) he has just gone out.




    It's the conditional sentence type 1. The if clause is in the present tense, the main clause they will be impressed is in the future tense. You can change the order of the sentence (They will be impressed if they look at your ID and they see that you're an education student) and the meaning is the same. This type of sentence means that the action in the if clause is probable in present or future.

    Note that when the if clause is in the middle of the sentence there is no comma.
