    Question Conditionals

    Hello!
    I have a couple questions in my homework.

    1 Complete the sentences with the correct form of the verb:
    I promise I _______(come and visit) you when I (be)_________ in town.

    I think it's 1st conditional. (I'll come and visit......am)
    But I dont' like the second part of sentences. In this case it sounds bad, isn't it?


    2 Use the thoughts to write conditional sentences:
    No one can hear me. I can't shout for help.

    My answer is:
    I could shout for help if someone could hear me.

    Is it correct? Can we use COULD twice in a sentence?Thank you for help!

    It doesn't sound wrong at all. Your answer is correct.

    My answer is:
    I could shout for help if someone could hear me.

    You can use "could" twice in a sentence but in this case it's not appropriate. Try another word instead of the first "could".

    Thank you for help!
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Your answer is correct, but when I am in town is a time, not a conditional, clause.
