Future Simple – Affirmative


The future is the tense used to talk about future events. We use the future simple structure to introduce predictions, beliefs or intentions about the future.

When expressed in its affirmative form, the verb confirms something about the subject.

The affirmative form of future simple is:
Subject + will + verb.

  • Short version of the affirmative form is: “I’ll – you’ll – he’ll“.
I/You/He/She/It will work
We/You/They will work
  1. Promises
    • I will be there, I promise!
    • She promises she will wear a bikini.
    • We will tell you if he shows up.
  2.  Spontaneous decisions
    • I’m cold, I will put my gloves on!
    • Sure, he’ll come tonight.
    • No worries, they’ll call you back.
  3.  Hopes/opinions
    • I hope you will leave soon.
    • I think she will pay with cash.
    • In my opinion, they will buy this business.

Future simple is used to:

  1. Make promises;
  2. Make spontaneous decisions;
  3. Express hopes or opinions.

We use the future simple to introduce predictions, beliefs or intentions about the future and we are usually certain that these events will happen. When used in its affirmative form, something about the subject is confirmed.

The future simple in its affirmative form has this structure:
Subject + will + verb.

For example:
— “I will go to the supermarket at 7.” = We use the future simple because we want to talk about a future intention.
