Future Simple – Interrogative


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.

The interrogative form is used to ask questions.

The interrogative form of future simple is:
Will + subject + verb + …?

Will I/You/He/She/It work …?
Will We/You/They work …?
  1. Yes/no questions
    • Will you be late?
    • Will she dance with me?
    • Will they buy this?
  2. Wh-questions
    • What will you wear tonight?
    • Where will he sit?
    • When will we finish our exercises?

Future simple in its interrogative form is used to:

  1. Make yes/no questions about people’s intentions;
  2. Wh-questions about people’s intentions.

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 interrogative form, we can use it to form questions.

The future simple in its interrogative form has this structure:
Will + subject + verb + …?

For example:
— “Will you go to the supermarket today?” = In this case we use the future simple because we ask information about someone’s future intentions.

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