Conditional continuous

Condicional continuo

La principal diferencia con el condicional simple es que pone el énfasis en la continuidad de la acción.

Los principales usos del condicional continuo son:

 1   Para formar las oraciones condicionales hipotéticas o de tipo 2 (el verbo de la oración subordinada irá en pasado simple).

If he were here he would be cleaning

Si estuviera aquí estaría limpiando.

I would be reading if it didn´t rain.

Estaría leyendo si no lloviera.

 2   Para expresar probabilidad, posibilidad, opiniones, conjeturas.

They would be watching tv.

Estarían viendo la tv.

He would´t be living here without his parent´s help.

No estaría viviendo aquí sin la ayuda de sus padres.

 3  Para hablar de algo futuro que estaría en proceso de realización o teniendo lugar en el pasado.

He knew she would be waiting for us.

Sabía que estaría esperándonos
