Maybe it will be possible to pass the English speaking interview in a few months if you will be watching movies with English subs every day and clarify the misunderstanding of English grammar.

Is there any conditional in this sentence? More specifically, is there an if-will exclusive in my example?

    Yes. The word "if" introduces a conditional clause. – Weather Vane Oct 10 at 19:13

Yes. When someone says that "if something happens, then something else will happen," it is a conditional.

The sentence you gave is a little bit trickier, because it does not say "then" anywhere. However, you can easily give it one, and it will still make sense.

"If you watch movies with English subs every day and clarify your misunderstandings of English grammar, then it will be possible to pass the English language exam."

  • Thank you very much for your answer. But is my example grammatical is incorrect? We have an argument about it.) – Nadia Krasnova Oct 10 at 19:41
  • @NadiaKrasnova it's grammatical, but (in my opinion) "will be watching" is awkward. "If you watch" is better. – Andrew Oct 10 at 20:37
