Uses: Simple Future Tense Class 5 English Grammar

We use the simple future tense

1. to express an action that will take place in the future.


  • shall return your dictionary tomorrow
  • They will come again next month

2. to talk about unplanned actions.


  • I’ll help you with your homework
  • It’s raining, I will close the window,

3. to make predictions.


  • It will rain tomorrow,
  • The trek will be difficult for you.

4. We use the will + verb to talk about actions that are not planned. The speaker decides to do the action at the time of speaking.


  • We will go to Iqbal’s party tomorrow.
  • If you sit down to study, I will help you complete your homework.

5. We use will + verb to predict a future event.

When an action is planned or arranged to take place in the near future, we sometimes use the be + going + to form instead of the Simple Future Tense.

  • They are going to visit us again next month.
