Future Tenses - Review

This is just a recap of what we learned about tenses in class today.

Future - GOING TO
The future verb tense "going to" is used in the following situation:

Planned Events - When a future event that has been planned before the time of speaking.
■I am going to visit Mexico in a few days.
■We are not going to work next week.
■They are going to attend university next year.
Future - WILL.

We use the future- WILL tense when there is no plan or decision to do something before we speak. We make the decision spontaneously at the time of speaking. Look at these examples:
•Hold on. I'll get a pen.
•We will see what we can do to help you.
•Maybe we'll stay in and watch television tonight.

In these examples, we had no firm plan before speaking. The decision is made at the time of speaking.

Future PERFECT (needs 1,2,3 things) will/won't +have+participle
The future perfect tense designates action that will have been completed at a specified time in the future.
see  the difference???
Saturday I will finish my housework. (simple future)
By Saturday noon, I will have finished my housework. (future perfect)

Further Examples - Look how all these events will have finished by a time in the future... BY is normally used with the future perfect

3. She'll have read the book by the time you arrive.

4. I'm afraid we won't have finished by the end of tomorrow afternoon.
5. What will you have studied by the time you finish college?

Use blog to ask any questions about these tenses.  What do you think about the 'future' now !!!

These videos recap my lesson almost exactly!!!
