🤔 Question Time: Talking about the future – Future Tense | English Time Ask Elo

 

🙏 @ Anas Aliyu Dispenser, Thank you for your question.  

 

😀 As usual, I will try to explain the difference using simple language and plenty of examples.  

 
 

There are different ways in which we can talk about the future in English.

 

Today, we will focus on “will” which is very easy to use, as you only add “will” to the basic verb form.

 

  • I will send you the information tomorrow.
  • Will he come to the party?
  • I won’t help you, I have to go.

 

 

1. To talk about future actions which aren’t planned. Usually we make a decision at the time of speaking , it is often used in promises, when we offer somebody help or ask for help.

 

  • I will post your letter tomorrow.
  • I will make dinner, you go and lie down.
  • Will you help me with this sentence?
  • They won’t come to the party.
  • I promise I won’t tell him about the surprise.
  • Don’t worry, I’ll be careful.

 

2. To make predictions. Predictions are guesses about what might happen in the future

 

  • People will live much longer in 25 years’ time.
  • In 10 years, I will be the manager of this shop.
  • Driverless cars will be common on our streets in the next 5 years.

 

 

NOTE: WE can also use “going to” or Present Continuous for future actions. The main difference is, we use them to talk about planned events in the future or to ask about plans.

 

  • I’m going to the cinema tonight.
  • Are you doing anything at the weekend?
  • I’m going to do a bit of gardening if the weather is fine.
  • People will live much longer in 25 years’ time.
  • In 10 years, I will be the manager of this shop.
  • Driverless cars will be common on our streets in the next 5 years.
