Unit 2.1

Future Simple Affirmative

Tenses

The future is the tense used to express 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 future simple, in its affirmative form, has this structure:
Subject + will + verb + …

SubjectwillVerb
I/You/He/She/Itwillwork
We/You/Theywillwork

Short versions of the affirmative form are: I’ll – you’ll – he’ll…

Promises

  • will be there, I promise!
  • She promises she will wear a bikini.
  • We will tell you if he shows up.

Spontaneous decisions

  • I’m cold, I will put my gloves on!
  • Sure, he’ll come tonight.
  • No worries, they’ll call you back.

Hopes/opinions/predictions

  • I hope you will leave soon.
  • I think she will pay with cash.
  • In my opinion, they will buy this business.

We use future simple, in its affirmative form to:

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

We use the future simple, in the affirmative form, to confirm predictions, beliefs or intentions about the future.

When we use future simple in its affirmative form, we start with the subject followed by will and the base form of the verb.

For example:
— “I will go to the supermarket at 7.” = The sentence is in the future simple affirmative, so we use will before the base form of the verb to go (will go).

Let’s revise this content within the {Form} section. Take a look at the {Example} section that shows its use within a context.
