Ifit began snowing, the coaches decided to cancel the game.
Onceit began snowing, the coaches decided to cancel the game.
Which one makes sense?
I usually use
If to express a future situation.
If the situation happens, it will bring the corresponding events.
simple present tense in the adverbial clause.
As for the events, I use
Will/Would to express the future tone explicitly.
According to the above description, I make some sentences.
(1) If it rains tomorrow, I will not go see a movie.
(2) If my brother passes that exam, we will give a party.
(3) If you could turn it down, I would appreciate it.
Back to my original question, I think it's perfect if I make one or two minor modifications.
If it begins snowing, the coaches will decide to cancel the game.
I'm not sure whether
once has the similar usage of the tense.
I have no idea about the precise bearing of the original sentence. It uses the past tense! In what situations do such kind of past tense appear?
My question might be not loud and clear, but much appreciate if any one come up with good answers.
