Types of future (future events)

TYPES OF FUTURE


1) Will (future simple) is used to express future intentions that are decided at the time of speaking (spontaneous offers, promises and decisions):
Come on, I'll help you with those bags. (seeing that someone is struggling with their shopping bags).

2) Be going to is used to express future intentions that have already been decided before the time of speaking:
I can't make it on Saturday. I'm going to help my parents around the house. (referring to a decision that the speaker has made in the past).

3) The present continuous tense refers to fixed future events and emphasises that plans or arrangements have already been made:
We are getting married next month. (the wedding has already been arranged)

4) We use the future perfect simple to talk about an activity that will be finished by a specific time in the future.
They‘ll have finished building the bridge by
next January.



5) We use the future continuous to talk about an activity that will be in progress at a specific time in the future.

This time next week I’ll be flying to Rome.
