The concept of The Future Tense is very important, but very complex and difficult for many English learners to understand. The reason, is not only because there are so many different forms to choose from, but also because the distinction between them is not always clear, especially for non natives. In the present unit we start first with Future Simple form. The future modal will is used with the base form of the verb. One example would be: She will do whatever her mother tells her to do. Positive form: Subject + will/shall + verb / He will go. Negative form: Subject + will/shall + not + verb/ He will not go. /He won?t go. Question form: Will/Shall + subject + verb / Will he go? Next tense we learn is Future Continuous. It has the subject + will + be + base verb+ing. Positive form: Subject + will + be + verb + ing She?ll be cooking dinner tonight. Negative form: Subject + will + not + be + verb + ing She won?t be cooking dinner tonight. Question form: Will + subject + be + verb + ing Will she be cooking dinner tonight? One more aspect is Future Perfect. It refers to an action that will be completed in the future. Ex: She will have written 10 books by her eightieth birthday. It is formed by subject + will + have + verb (past participle) Positive form: Subject + will + have + past participle They will have finished their studies by December. Negative form: Subject + will + not + have + past participle They will not have finished their studies by December. Question form: Will + subject + have + past participle Will they have finished their studies by December? The Future Perfect Continuous is composed of two elements: the future perfect of the verb \"to be\" (will have been) + the present participle of the main verb (base + ing). Positive: Subject + to be (am/is/are) + going to + verb (base form) I?m going to bake a cake this Saturday. Negative: Subject + to be + not + going to + verb (base form) I?m not going to bake a cake this Saturday. Question: To be + subject + going to + verb (base form) Am I going to bake a cake this Saturday? Now that I passed through all the different types and forms of The Future Tenses I?m determined to start to practice more communicating about future time with people. I will challenge myself to try to improve my fluency and be clearer about time frame.
