III/ Video Transcript
Hello let’s look at the future simple together! So to form the future simple we use a modal verb “will” that
never changes. We do not add an S. Be careful at the third-person singular: it doesn’t change.
I will, you will, he will, we will, you will, they will + Followed by a bare infinitive
I insist on bare because you will hear certain learners say “he will to go”* (wrong)
“He will to learn”* (wrong). So be careful! Remove the “to”: it is a bare infinitive. Positive form.
Now the negative form: you have two options.
You can either go with” “I will not learn” or “I won’t learn”. So full or complete form vs. contracted form.
Will I learn?
If it’s negative then we can say: “Will I not learn? or “Won’t I learn?”
When do we use “I will learn”? We use it when we have something set in the future, something that is
certain to happen or something less certain something uncertain or something more spontaneous.
Now these signal words will help you use this particular tense:
We can use the simple future with: “tomorrow”, expressions with “next”. So: “next month”, “next week”, “next time” or if we want to express uncertainty as we saw here we can use words such as “probably”, “perhaps”, “maybe”, and so on now…
What to look out for in the classroom?
Make sure these components are used correctly.
As I said before be careful: “will” does not change and we have to use a bare infinitive.
Secondly don’t you forget that there are alternatives.
We’ll look at those in our next video on the future and watch out for this particular tense when using “conditional clauses” or “if clauses”. You will see that once you start learning about the conditional you’ll want to come back to this video!'The verb to be or not to be, that is the question.' (Hamlet)Click To Tweet
