LESSON THREE

  

THE FUTURE TENSES

1-THE FUTURE SIMPLE TENSE

The future simple tense indicates that an action is in the future relative to the speaker or writer.

 

FORM:

There are no inflected forms for the future in English (nothing like those -ed or -s endings in the other tenses). Instead, the future tense employs the helping verbs will or shall with the base form of the verb:

a- She will leave soon.

b- We shall overcome.

The future is also formed with the use of a form of “go” plus the infinitive of the verb:

– He is going to faint.

English can even use the present to suggest the future tense:

– I am leaving later today.”

USAGE:

1- The future simple tense is used to express that an action will happen in the future:

I shall telephone you this evening.

 

2-The following adverbs are used with the future tense:

Tomorrow, next week / month / year , soon , later , in an hour / in ten days time / in five weeks time, in the future, …

a- I shall go to Tripoli the day after tomorrow.

b- I’ll see you later.

c- There will be a holiday next week.

d- We shall have an exam in future.

 

2- THE FUTURE CONTINUOUS TENSE.

The future continuous tense indicates continuing action, something that will be happening, going on, at some point in the future.

FORM:

The future continuous tense is formed with the modal “will” plus “be,” plus the present participle of the verb (with an -ing ending): “I will be running in next year’s Boston Marathon. Our campaign plans suggest that the President will be winning the southern vote by November. “

(will + be + verb + ing )

3- THE FUTURE PERFECT TENSE

The future perfect tense indicates that an action will have been completed (finished or “perfected”) at some point in the future.
