Simple future tense
The simple future tense is a verb tense that is used to describe actions, states, or habits that will happen in the future. It is used to express predictions or to make plans.
In English, the simple future tense is formed by using the auxiliary verb “will” or “shall” before the base form of the verb. For example, “I will walk,” “he will walk,” “she will walk,” “it will walk,” “we will walk,” “they will walk.”
Here are some examples of sentences in the simple future tense:
- “I will meet you at the station tomorrow.” (describing a future action)
- “She will finish her degree next year.” (describing a future event)
- “The train will arrive at 10:00 AM.” (describing a future event that will happen at a specific time)
- “The sun will rise in the east tomorrow.” (describing a future event that happens regularly)
It’s important to note that there are other ways to express future actions in English, such as using “going to,” “shall” or “am/is/are + going to” which are used to express future plans, intentions or predictions.
For example: “I am going to meet you at the station tomorrow.”
To practice using the simple future tense, you can try writing simple sentences using different subjects and verbs, and then check to make sure that they are in the correct form. You can also try identifying the verb tense in more complex sentences and make sure they are in the simple future tense.
Remember that the simple future tense is a fundamental aspect of English grammar, and mastering it will help you to communicate more effectively and accurately about future events.
