Simple future tense

September 21, 2012pdf

The simple future tense is used to make simple predictions about the future. We do not usually use this tense to talk about pre-planned future events.

The simple future tense is made with will/shall + first form of the verb.

Study the following examples.

I will come.

She will go.

In British English, shall can be used instead of will with first person pronouns (I and we). In American English, shall is not normally used.

I will not do it. (US)

I shall not do it. OR I will not do it. (GB)
