    Exclamation "unless","if","even if"


    I would like to know the differences between them in conditional sentences.
    Could you explain that to me with examples.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: "unless","if","even if"

    Unless = If + negative verb:
    If he doesn't come soon we'll leave.
    We'll leave unless he comes soon.

    Even if = emphatic form
    Even if he tries as hard as a he can, he'll never succeed. (Even if adds to the sense of the person having no chance.)
