Conclusion

1. In Simple Future Tense

  • A Plural or Singular subject combines directly with a Simple Plural Verb, eg : I will go
  • In a Question, Use ‘will/can/must/should etc)’ before a subject, followed by a simple verb, eg : Will you go?

2. In Future Continuous Tense

  • I is used with ‘will be’ followed by a continuous verb, eg : I will be going
  • She is used with ‘will be’ followed by a continuous verb, eg : She will be going
  • You is used with ‘will be’ followed by a continuous verb, eg : You will be going
  • The position of ‘will’ are reversed in Question, eg : Will you be going? Will I be going?

3. In sentences using an adjective or preposition, the use of ‘will be’ is similar to continuous verb, eg : I will be happy, You will be happy, will I be happy? will you be happy?

4. In combination of Future continuous and simple sentence

  • is, are or am must be used before ‘going to’ followed by a simple verb, eg : I am going to see her now. She is going to see you now. They are going to see us tomorrow

5. Common errors to avoid : I will be go, I will going, Will you be go? Will you going? Will you happy?
