Simple future

Simple Future has two different forms in English: “will” and “be going to.”
The simple future refers to a time later than now, and expresses facts or certainty. In this case there is no ‘attitude’.

The simple future is used:
a. to predict a future event: It will rain tomorrow.
b. (with I/we) to express a spontaneous decision: I will pay for the tickets by credit card.
c. to express willingness: I will do the washing-up. He will carry your bag for you.
d. (in the negative form) to express unwillingness: The baby will not eat his soup…

We form the  simple future by using:

 Subject + will + Infinitive

                – Subject + Going to + Infinitive

Example 1:

                 I will learn                  We will learn

                 You will learn             You will learn

                He/She will learn      They will learn

Example 2:

                I am going to travel            We are going to travel

               You are going to travel       You are going to travel

              He/She is going to travel      They are  going to travel

NBwe usually change:   I will by I’ll  , and  I will not by  I won’t.
