Unit 8 Future tenses
The tense system is one of the most complex areas of the English language. The seven most common are the future simple, the future continuous, the future perfect, the future perfect continuous, be going + infinitive, the present simple and the present continuous.
For future simple, for affirmative sentences we say, ‘I shall, I will, we shall, we will, they will and etc.’ As for negative sentences, ‘I will not, I shall not, you will not, they shall not, we shall not and etc’. To ask a question, we simply say/write ‘Shall I?, will I? Will you?, and etc’. As for negative questions, simply add the word ‘not’ where applicable. To use the future simple for example, ‘Winter will start in November as usual, when will you know?’. The word ‘shall’ is frequently used in making suggestions, invitations. In affirmative sentences its use has become more formal. For example, ‘Shall we dance?, Shall I get the bill for you’.
Future continuous form is used to say that something will be in progress at a particular moment in the future, to predict the present to say what we think or guess might be happening now, for polite enquiries referring to other people’s plans, but not to influence the listener’s intentions and to refer to future events which are fixed or decided. Sentences for example, ‘we’ll be waiting for you, I won’t be wearing a dress’. To form the sentences as said, the subject + will + be + verb+ing.
Future perfect tense is used to say that something will have been done, completed or achieved by a certain time in the future. For example, ‘I will have worked here for 2 years’. To form sentences, will + have + past participle.
Future perfect continuous is to say how long something will have continued by a certain time. For instance, an affirmative sentence such as, ‘I will have been working for seven years’.
