Lesson 16 - The Future
On This Page
- The verb "will"
- "Find the Mistake" activity
In lesson 14 (the animals lesson) we learned that you can use "going to" to talk about the future.
I'm going to swim.
You can also use the verb "will" to talk about the future. To form the contraction you use an apostrophe and double L.
I will swim.
I'll swim. (contraction)
We put the subject first ("I" in the sentence above), then "will", then the verb. In negative sentences we use "will not" or the contraction "won't".
I will not swim.
I won't swim.
To form a question, we use "will" first, then the subject, then the verb.
Will you swim?
Write sentences about what these people will do using the information given. Write the sentences without a contraction like the example.
Susan is studying to be a teacher. Write sentences about what she will and won't do in her future career. Write the affirmative sentences without a contraction and the negative sentences with a contraction like the examples below.
Write the sentences with contractions.
I will ski.
