FUTURE TENSE: SIMPLE FUTURE

No change occurs in the simple form of the verb in the expression of the future, but English has a few ways of indicating futurity.

  • By using the modal auxiliary verbs ‘shall’ and ‘will’

e.g I shall travel soon.

You will see me again.

 

  • By using the form ‘be going’ and ‘to’ infinitive:

Emeka is going to succeed

It is going to rain today

 

  • By using the present progressive

Adamu is leaving tomorrow

We  are travelling next year.
