Hi Kadisha,

First, please understand that "explain me" means "объяснять меня"(!). You need to write, "explain to me": объяснить мне.

I guess that you already understand how each conditional form works. Now, remember that each conditional form has two parts, and that's basically how we can mix the conditionals.

"If you had helped me..." (3rd conditional, unreal past = you didn't help me)
"...I would understand this now" (2nd conditional, unreal present = I don't understand this)

Hi there, 

Actually mixed conditional is the easiest, you don't have to worry about rules- you can use 2nd and 3rd conditional together.

It can be past-present, past-future, present-past, present-future, etc. It simply means you can use your permutation skills and make a pair among present, past and future. 


PS- You are talking about mixed conditional so I have assumed you have a good grasp over other conditionals.

Hi,

You should ask your question in the Answer section of italki instead of the Discussion section.
