FUTURE SIMPLE WILL

Simple future tense has two forms: “will” and “going to”. Although similar, they have different uses. During this lesson you will learn how to properly use “will” when speaking about the future.                                                                                                                       

We use auxiliary verb “will” when the speaker does something voluntarily. The decision is made in the time of speaking, not planned ahead.

We use "will” with the following expressions:

EXPRESSION
EXAMPLE
REQUESTS
PROMISES
DEMANDS
Will you help me with shopping?
I promise I will finish it before the deadline.
You won’t meet with him anymore!
DECISIONS
CHOICES MADE IN THE MOMENT OF SPEAKING (not planed ahead)
I will buy this dress.
I will make the cinnamon cookies.
I’ll go for a walk.
 
OPINIONS
HOPES
UNCERTAINTY OR ASSUMPTION REGARDING THE FUTURE
He’s smart. I think he will handle it.
I hope it will snow soon.
She’s not sure if she will achieve the highest score.
DECLINE
REFUSAL
I won’t do it!
I won’t let her stay overnight!

 

Forming sentences with “will”:

Subject + will + verb (present form)

Example:

it will
=

we will
=

Forming questions with “will”:

Will + subject + verb (present form) + ?

Example:

Will you go out with me?

Will you help me with math?

 

Forming negatives with “will”:

Subject + will not + verb (present form)

Shorter form of will not = won’t

Example:

I won’t go there ever again.

He will not listen to you.
