    if and when

    hi there,

    But his love of good food hasn't changed and his fans know that (if/ when) they watch an episode of Yan Can cook, they would learn to cook delicious dishes.

    Which option is correct: if or when? Any difference between 'if' and 'when'?

    Smile Re: if and when

    I think in this case we use "if" because his fans haven't seen "an episode of Yan Can cook" yet!
    And what about the differences between "if" and "when", I think there aren't many differences between them in this case, but in the enquiring there are maybe some differences.

    You can use either "when" or "if" but you should say "they will" not "they would."
