    The best way to illustrate the use of the conditional, I think, is in direct v reported speech.

    Direct: He said, “They will return.” (will return → future)
    Indirect: He said that they would return. (would return → conditional)

    On the topic of Conditionals, you might find our article on the English Conditional to be of some help.

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
