Hi everyone, welcome back to Aze IT Studio post. Today i am going to tell you about Future Continuous Tense.

Here we go

Future Continuous Tense

Future continuous tense is tenses to state action that happen in the future and it will be continue and never be finished at that moment.

How do we make the Future Continuous Tense?

The structure of the future continuous tense is:

Subject + auxiliary verb will + auxiliary verb be + main verb (verb 1 + ing)

For negative sentences in the future continuous tense, we insert not between will and be. For question sentences, we exchange the subject and will. Look at these example sentences with the future continuous tense:

When we use the future continuous tense in speaking, we often contract the subject and will:

I will = I’ll
You will = You’ll
He will = He’ll
She will = She’ll
It will = It’ll
We will = We’ll
They will = They’ll

For spoken negative sentences in the future continuous tense, we contract with won't, like this:

I will not = I won’t
You will not = You won’t
He will not = He won’t
She will not = She won’t
It will not = It won’t
We will not = We won’t
They will not = They won’t

We sometimes use shall instead of will, especially for I and we.

How do we use the Future Continuous Tense?

The future continuous tense expresses action at a particular moment in the future. The action will start before that moment but it will not have finished at that moment. For example, tomorrow I will start work at 2pm and stop work at 6pm:

At 4pm tomorrow, I will be working means At 4pm tomorrow, I will be in the middle of working (future).

When we use the future continuous tense, our listener usually knows or understands what time we are talking about. Look at these examples:
  • I will be playing tennis at 10am tomorrow.
  • They won't be watching TV at 9pm tonight.
  • What will you be doing at 10pm tonight?
  • What will you be doing when I arrive?
  • She will not be sleeping when you telephone her.
  • We 'll be having dinner when the film starts.
  • Take your umbrella. It will be raining when you return.



So that's all for today. See you on the next post.
