    1st Conditional

    Hello!

    We are going to leave as soon as we have enough money.

    Is this the 1st Conditional?

    Is it correct that we can replace "if" with " before,after,as soon as,when,while," in the 1st Conditional depending on specific situation?

    Re: 1st Conditional

    That is not a first conditional. If you want a first conditional, try "We are going to leave if we have enough money."

    According to the above, the following may also be a conditional.
    'We are not going to leave unless we have enough money.'

    Re: 1st Conditional

    The action may be conditional, but it is not in the form of a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd conditional.
