In this unit I learned about the various future tenses. These include the future simple, future continuous, future perfect, future perfect continuous, and the "going to" future tenses. The first of these is the future simple tense, which is grammatically formed in the affirmative by using the subject + will or shall. Its usages include stating future facts and certainties, promises, predictions, assumptions, speculations, and spontaneous decisions. Examples of sentences which use the future simple tense include "I'll be home soon", "It will be cold this winter" and "We shall get right to work". Teaching ideas for this tense include activities where students pretend they are telling another student's fortune, or that they have won the lottery. The next tense is the future continuous, which is grammatically formed in the affirmative by using the subject + will + be + verb + ing. This tense is used to state something will be in progress at a moment in the future, such as "By this time next week, we'll be flying to Paris"; to predict the present by saying what we think might be happening now, such as "Mom will probably be working now"; and for polite inquiries referring to others plans, but not to influence the listener's intentions, such as "Will you be dining with us tonight?" Teaching ideas for the future continuous include having students arrange meetings with each other based on calendars they have been given, or coming up with excuses for refusing a date such as "I'll be washing my hair." The next tense in this unit is the future perfect tense, which is grammatically formed in the affirmative by using the subject + will + have + past participle. This tense's use is to state something which will have been done completed or achieved by a certain time in the future, such as "My husband promises he will have planted the garden by summer." A teaching idea for this tense would be having students invent a future career, with sentences such as "By age 25, I'll have written my first symphony." The fourth tense is the future perfect continuous, which is grammatically formed in the positive by using the subject + will + have + been + verb + ing. This tense is used to say how long something will have continued by a certain time, such as "By the time we arrive at Grandma's house, we will have been driving 6 hours." One activity for teaching this to have students ask each other questions such as "How long will you have been ___________", and have them answer with the sentence "By next year, I will have been __________" (example: learning English for 4 years). The last future tense in this unit is the "going to" future, which is formed grammatically in the positive with subject + am/is/are + going to + base form of verb. Uses for this tense include stating intentions, such as "I'm going to finish my lunch now"; predictions based on present evident, such as "I think it's all going to work out"; and plans based on decisions made before speaking, such as "We are going to visit France in June." Activities for teaching this tense to students include having students make holiday/birthday plans, or having them play the "going to" game where they state to each other what they are going to do based on the prompts they are given, such as to the prompt "You just found out you won the lottery", the student might say "I'm going to quit my job." This unit also mentions that the present simple and present continuous tenses can sometimes be used to talk about ideas in the future, such as "The plane arrives at 10:00 tomorrow" or "I am visiting my mother tomorrow."
