On today’s Tear Up Your Textbook Tuesday, find out how to stop using “if” all the time and start using “as long as”!

The phrase “as long as” is a connector similar to “if”, or “provided that”.  It means that meeting certain conditions will allow something to happen.  The emphasis is on the importance of meeting the conditions.

Here are a couple ways “as long as” might be used:

  • When do I have to be home?
  • Whenever you want, as long as you bring the car back in good condition.
  • “Is your landlord nice?”
  • “He is, as long as we pay the rent on time.”

How can you use “as long as”?
