LS Refresher 36 : If Vs. When

zEvery week, we will post an LS refresher.  Check out today’s refresher and please don’t forget to answer the short quiz after.

Both “if” and “when” can be used when referring to future events, but this does not mean we can use them interchangeably all the time. Here are the basic rules that were posted by Englishleap.com (http://www.englishleap.com).

  1. ‘When’ should be used while referring to something that one is certain will happen.
  2. ‘If’ should be used while referring to something that might or might not happen.
  3. ‘When’ and ‘if’ can be used interchangeably in case the situation being referred to is predictable or repetitive.
