Will, be going to, present continuous, present simple, future perfect, future continuous, modals – even on occasion past tenses. There are a number of different ways to talk about the future in English. In this session, we'll look at how future time has traditionally been presented in coursebooks and grammar books in terms of function, and explore how helpful that approach is for our students – and, indeed, how accurate. We'll then look at the role formality, emphasis and sentence structure play in determining how we can and should talk about future situations.
