Unit 8 covers future tenses. The future simple form is covered first, including; affirmative, negative, question, negative question and contractions. Its usages include; future facts and certainties, promises, predictions based on no present evidence, assumptions/speculations, spontaneous decisions, and threats. Shall/will is then discussed, as well as typical mistakes/errors, and teaching ideas. Future continuous form is covered next, including; affirmative, yes/no questions, and negatives. Its usages include; saying that something will be in progress at a certain time in the future, predicting the present (what might be happening now at a future time), for polite enquiries about people’s plans (not influencing intentions), and referring to future events that are fixed or decided. The typical student errors/mistakes and teaching ideas are then covered. Future perfect form includes affirmative, yes/no questions, and negatives. Its usage is for when we need to say something that will have been done/completed/achieved by a certain time in the future. Typical student errors/mistakes and teaching ideas are also covered. The future perfect continuous form includes affirmative, yes/no questions, and negatives. Its usage is for how long something will have continued by a certain time. Again, the typical student errors/mistakes and teaching ideas are covered. Another type of tense is introduced in the future tenses. That is, ‘going to’ future. The affirmative, yes/no question, and negative forms are all covered. Its usages include; intentions, predictions based on present evidence, and plans (decisions made before speaking). Teaching ideas are also given for this form. The present simple and present continuous relating to future tense are also explained in this unit.
I previously struggled with the tenses units, though I feel with more practice, I am understanding the practical application of the much more thoroughly.
