How do we say or talk about events that have not taken place yet but will take place in the future?
We use simple future tense to describe such events. It expresses a future event or a future state of being.
Future event: I will go for a walk after dinner.
Future state of being: I will be a legend.
Simple future tense is used to talk about facts or events of certainty that will begin in the future and also end in the future. In simpler terms, it is used to talk about things that haven’t happened yet.
An extra verb ‘will’ or ‘shall’ is added in front of the root form of verb for future tense.
I will eat two small sandwiches.
We will sleep during the afternoon.
As we can see in the examples above, the subject can be singular or plural but the treatment does not change.
