FUTURE SIMPLE X PRESENT CONTINUOUS WITH FUTURE MEANING
Dialog:"There's a cold front moving in from the northeast so expect Saturday to be cloudy with a 75% chance of rain."

When we want to express an idea in the future we can use a variety of verb forms. In today's grammar tutorial we are going to deal with the future simple with "will" and the use of the present continuous, "to be + -ing" to express future idea.

 

1) PRESENT CONTINUOUS WITH A FUTURE MEANING

Expresses the idea of something happening in the future but that has already been decided or arranged.

  • I'm not doing anything special this evening.
  • I'm meeting my parents at the station at half past ten.
  • Are you coming to the party on Saturday?

 

2) FUTURE SIMPLE

When we make a simple prediction about a future happening or situation, we use will/won't.

  • I think Kate will pass the BAR. She is a very dedicated student.
  • Can you wait for me? I won't be very long.
  • Do you think the weather will be good enough for a picnic?

Sobre esta aula

In today's podcast Ashley and Josh chat about the weather, a very important topic for any English learner who likes to keep an umbrella handy and a jacket in the car, since we never know when gusty winds, scattered showers, or generally lousy weather might come in, ruining our day at the beach!
