                 FUTURE TIME

Explanations

 

Prediction  1.  Will

Will is used to make predictions. It is often preceded by I think or by opinion words like perhaps. A time expression is also necessary.

I think it '11 rain tomorrow. Perhaps she ‘ll be late. In speech, both will and shall are contracted to '11. Use of shall after I and we is more common in formal speech.

2 Going to

If a predicted event is very near, and especially in impersonal state­ments, going to is also commonly used for predictions. Will can also be used in these examples, with no change of meaning.

You're going to fall!

Liverpool are going to win the Cup.

3 Present cause

We often make a prediction because we can see the cause of the event. Look out! There's a bus coining! It's going to bit us! I can see you're going to have a baby. When is it due?

4 Future continuous

The future continuous is used to describe a situation in the future at a particular time.

This time next week we’ll be  eating lunch on the plane!

It is also used to predict a future state or habit at a particular time in the future.

In ten years time I expect I'll be  in London.

And I'll probably be cycling to work.

5 Future perfect

The future perfect looks back from a point in the future and refers to indefinite time up to that point.

By the time we get there, the film will have started.

This means that at the future time when we get there, we can say:

The film has started.

Future time clauses 1.After time expressions when, until and a present tense form
is used, although this refers to future time.

I'll wait for you here until you get back.

2.        The present perfect can be used to emphasize the completion of an event.

I'll wait here until you have finished.

Intention. 1Going to

Going to is used to describe a present intention I'm going to fix the television tomorrow.

2 Will

Will is also used for decisions made at the time of speaking. I know, I'll gel him a wallet for his birthday.


 


Plans and facts        1.  Present continuous

The present continuous is used to describe plans and arrangements which are definite. Such arrangements may be written in a diary.

Sony, I can't help you, I'm leaving in the morning.

2. Present Simple

The present simple is used to describe future events which we cannot control. They may be facts, such as events in a timetable, or a law. The plane for Paris leaves at 9.45.
