Learning English language for academic purposes is one of the important fields in every corner of the world, and the students face many difficulties in different learning areas, so the researchers and ELT experts from different disciplines innovate varieties of teaching methods and integrated teaching techniques to share their experimental and lifelong experiences. One of the difficult learning areas for the EFL and ESL learners is to construct conditional sentences. The students make many mistakes in conditional sentence structures because of many reasons including their L1 interference. This action research was conducted to explore the effectiveness of TBLT and GTM integrated teaching techniques to teach conditional sentences to the students of intermediate level and fill the research gaps in this specific area. A pre-test, a post-test and a learners’ feedback questionnaire were designed to collect data for this study and the data analysis was done in mixed mode. The participants’ recorded responses confirmed the effectiveness of the integration of these two prominent teaching methods to improve learners’ understanding and performance in constructing different kinds of conditional sentences.
