Future Tenses Level 2

Going to Future

We use the 'going to future' tense for plans, decisions and firm arrangements.We make this tense with the verb to be + going to + verb.

I 'm (am) going to study in America next year.
(He / She / It) 's (is) going to become a best seller.
(We / You / They) 're (are) going to take an exam next week.

The negative form of the going to future tense is not.
For example:
I'm not going to decorate the house this year

Present Continuous
We use the present continuous tense to say what is happening now and for future arrangements.

We make this tense with the verb to be and the -ing form of the verb.

For example, I'm working (at the moment / tomorrow)

First Conditional
After if and when we usually use the present to talk about the future.

We make this tense with two clauses or parts:

(If / When) + simple present, will + verb

For example:
If the rain stops tomorrow, we'll have a picnic.

If and will are never in the same clause.
