Unit 2.2

Present Continuous for Future

Verbs

The future is the tense used to predict or express future events.

When we use the present continuous structure we refer to fixed plans {see Present continuous, A1 Level}.

{See Present continuous, A1 level}.

  • She‘s having a birthday party next week.
  • She isn’t having a birthday party next week.
  • Is she having a birthday party next week?

Present continuous can be used to express, deny or ask about planned future activities or fixed arrangements whose time has already been decided.

Present continuous can be used to express the future or to refer to fixed plans.

For example:
— “I am working the whole summer.” = We use the present continuous for future because we are expressing the near future (soon).
♦ “I am working the whole summer.” = We use the present continuous because we are expressing our current situation (now).
♦ “I will work the whole summer.” = We use the future simple because we express a more distant period of time (future).
