Now that we have had a look at the past and present tenses, it is time to look ahead into the future! More specifically, we’ll be looking at the future simple tense today, also often called the will-future.
Here are some examples to start with:
I have just arrived in Berlin today and I’m looking forward to seeing all my friends and family. While I’m here, we are going to celebrate my brother-in-law’s birthday with a nice big party. We sat down and made a plan and everyone volunteered to bring something.
My mum said, ‘I’ll bring a salad!‘
My dad said, ‘I’ll sort out the BBQ.’
I said, ‘I’ll bring some champagne to celebrate!’
My sister said, ‘I’ll make my husband’s favourite cake.‘
My little niece said …. well she didn’t offer to bring anything but I’m pretty sure she’ll help us eat! 😉
When people offer to do something they usually use the future simple. But you can also use the future simple for other reasons. Watch the video below to find out more!
