Future Simple Affirmative

Verbs

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 + …

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

  3. Hopes/opinions/predictions

Future simple, in its affirmative form, is used 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, and when we are certain that these events will happen.

The structure is:
Subject + will + verb + …

For example:
— “I will go to the supermarket at 7.” = We use the future simple to express a future intention.
