GRAMMAR PRACTICE – FUTURE SIMPLE WITH WILL

 

 

Affirmative form of “Will”

The continuous future or progressive future is used to describe an action that will continue for a time or for something that has been pre-established.

 

Suject Will + be + verb -ing Rest of the sentence
I/You/He/She/It/We/They will be learning

 

Negative form of “Will”

When we use the negative form of will, there are two ways: will not and won’t. We usually use the contracted form and we reserve the use of the long form when we want to give emphasis or formality.

 

Suject Won’t + be + verb -ing Rest of the sentence
I/He/She/It/You/We/They won’t be teaching in Spain.

 

Questions with “Will”

When we formulate a question that is answered with yes or no, we use will or won’t, then the subject followed by “be + the verb in -ing”. Finally we add the rest of the sentence.

 

Will Suject Be + verb -ing Rest of the sentence
Will I/you/we/he/she/it/they be going to the party tonight?
Won’t I/you/we/he/she/it/they be painting the new house?

 

What, where, when, why, who, how can be used at the beginning of a question. Along with will, a subject and “be + verb in -ing” we can ask a question that requires more information in the answer.

 

Wh- Will Suject Be + verb -ing Rest of the sentence
When will I/you/we/
he/she/it/they
be coming to dinner?

Questions with “Going to”

What, where, when, why, who, how can be used at the beginning of a question . Jungo with a form of to be, a subject, going to and the base of the verb, we can enunciate a question that requires more information in the answer.

When we ask a question that is answered with yes or no, we start with the form of to be: am, is, are, then the subject, followed by going to and the base of the verb. Finally, we add the rest of the sentence.

Negative form of  “Going to”

The structure of the phrase for “going to” is similar to the affirmative but adding not. Contractions are often used in both ways but long forms are reserved when we want to emphasize them. However, there is no contraction for am not. Instead, we say I’m.

 

Suject  To be form + going to Verb  (base form of  the verb) Rest of the sentence
I am not going to learn to speak English.
He/She/It is not (isn’t) going to teach the assignment.
