FUTURE CONTINUOUS

1) FUTURE CONTINUOUS
Dialog: "
Well, now that I've been promoted I'll be traveling a lot more..."

We use the future continuous to talk about a pre-arranged action or event that will be in progress at a particular moment in the future. We can also use it to talk about something that we predict will be in progress at a certain time in the future.

FORM:
WILL + BE + VERB (-ING)

  • I'll be giving a presentation tomorrow at 4pm.
  • Later today the U.S. Congress will be meeting to discuss passing a bill to cut carbon emissions.
  • In the near future people will be using the wind and the sun as their primary source of energy.

2) FUTURE CONTINUOUS WITH MODAL VERBS
Dialog: "
I might be using it for that..."

The future continuous can also be used with the modals, "may", "might", and "could" to talk about the probability of something happening at a certain point in the future.

FORM: 
COULD/MAY/MIGHT + BE + VERB (-ING)

  • It could be raining when you get there so bring an umbrella.
  • We may be moving to Spain next year.

Note the difference between "may not"/"might not" and "could not" (couldn't). "May not" and "might not" are used to say that it is possible that something will not happen in the future, whereas "couldn't" is used to talk about an action that is impossible.

  • I may not/might not be spending Christmas with my family this year. (it's possible I will not stay with them)
  • Jack couldn't be traveling this weekend.  He has to work on Saturday.  (it's not possible that he will be traveling)

Or are you the type who's had the same cell phone for ages, because you're much more interested in how long the battery lasts, than how fast the broadband service is? In today's lesson Josh and Ashley talk about the latest iPhone and whether it will revolutionize the way we use cell phones.
