1. In Future Simple Present Tense

  • A Singular subject combines directly with a Future Verb, eg : He can go
  • In a Question, Use ‘future verb’ before a subject, followed by a simple verb, eg : Can he go?

2. In Future Continuous Tense

  • Singular or Plural Subject is used with ‘future verb’ followed by ‘be’ and a continuous verb, eg : He will be going
  • The position of ‘future verb’ is reversed in Question, eg : Will he be going?

3. In sentences using an adjective or preposition, the use of future verb is similar to continuous verb, eg : He will be happy, He will be here, Will he be happy?

4. Common errors to avoid : He will be go, He will going
