FUTURE TENSES

There are many ways to express the future according to the situation, you can use present, present continuous, going to verb, will + verb, future perfect, future perfect continous…

We normally use the present tense When we know about the future .

We use the present simple for something scheduled or arranged previously:

We have presentation about “life in the future” next Wednesday

 

We can use the present continuous to talk abour plans or future  arrangements:

I’m watching Seleccion Colombia soccer game tomorrow

 

We use will to talk about the future:

-When we make predictions:

I think Colombia will win tomorrow.

-To mean want to or be willing to:

I hope you will enjoy the concert

-To make offers and promises:

I’ll send you some exercises through my blog.

-To talk about offers and promises:
Danny will help  you with the task.

We use (be) going verbto+ :

·         To talk about plans and intentions:

We’re going to travel to Monteria.
·         When we can see that something is likely to happen:

Look at those black clouds. I think it’s going to rain.

-We often use verbs like would likeplanwantmeanhopeexpect to talk about the future:

What are you going to do next year? I’d like to go to New York.
We plan to go to USA for our holidays.

CONNECTORS: ALTHOUGH/ HOWEVER / NEVERTHELESS

Some tips:

  • After although we use a subject + verb
  • We can use ‘although’ at the beginning or in the middle of a sentence
  • Sometimes we use though instead of although
  • Although and However are two conjunctions that indicate contrast or opposition.
  •  

    The main difference between although and however is that although is a subordinating conjunction while however is a conjunctive adverb.
