The conditional I. or kondicional sadašnji is a grammatical mood that we use to express:
1. A proposition whose validity is dependent on some condition
Popio bih kavu s tobom da nisam u velikoj žurbi. - I would take a coffee with you, if I wasn't in a hurry.
2. A hypothetical state of affairs, or an uncertain event
Kad bismo učili kako treba, rezultati bi bili bolji. - If we would study more, results would be better.
3. A polite question or a request
Gospodine, biste li nam pokazali put? - Sir, would you show us the way?
4. An intention
Vikao je ne bi li ga čuli. - He was shouting in order to make them hear him.
There is only one signal word used in conditional mood; "Kad" (if)
The conditional I. grammatical mood is formed of auxiliary verb "biti" in aorist + endings for active verbal adjective which are added to the given verb. Look at the following examples:
|Infinitive form||Auxiliary verb in aorist||Active verbal adjective|
|ostati (to stay)||bih||ostala|
|prenočiti (to sleep)||bih||prenočila|
Ja bih ostala ovdje. - I would like to stay here.
On bi prenočio kod tebe. - He would liek to sleep in your place.
As examples of conjugation are chosen auxiliary verbs in masculine gender.

Hello everbody, I am an experienced and teaching-passionate language professional offering tailor-made Croatian (all levels), ... General English (Elementary, Beginner's, Intermediate & Upper-intermediate level) and Russian (Elementary & Intermediate level) Conversation lessons as well as Business English. The lessons are structured ccording to student's needs with a variety of interesting topics. A range of different teaching materials is used. I tend to apply mostly visual aids as, according to my experience, they help students most in memorising new words and language structures. During the lessons we are focusing on further development of communication skills but we are also exploring vocabulary, grammar and culture. We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable. As an open and friendly person with an international family and experience of life in other countries, I enjoy meeting people of other cultures. I would be happy to get a chance to help people all over the world to learn the languages I teach. Perhaps you as well? Welcome! Dobro došli! Добро пожаловать! Welkom! Read more
