The conditional mood is formed by adding the following endings to the future stem of the relevant verb.
Nota Bene: The endings used for the conditional mood are identical to those used for the imperfect tense.
The conditional mood conveys the idea of ‘would do’ in English and is used in the following situations:
-As a mark of politeness
-With si + imperfect tense to express a desire
-When recounting something that was said in the future tense
Nota Bene: the conditional can also be used to express an allegation or when attributing an opinion to someone else that would normally be expressed in the present in English.
