Forms for the Future

Lately we have learnt about the three different forms English has to refer to future time: be going to, Present Continuous and 'will'.

For an explanation and activities on be going to, click here.

Remember that we use Present Continuous to talk about totally planned activities. You can review it here.

But we can also refer to the future using the modal auxiliary verb will.
