Simple Future Tense

Simple future tense indicates an action that has not yet taken place.

  • We will go to Germany next summer.
  • They will meet you at the coffee shop at seven o’clock.
  • The contractor will finish the project by Friday.

The pattern for forming simple future tense is as follows:

  • Will + base form of verb

Will is one of a small group of verbs called modal auxiliaries that do not vary in form.

To form the negative of a simple future verb, place not between the auxiliary will and the base verb. To form a question, move will to the beginning of the sentence, in front of the subject.

  • They will meet you at the coffee shop.
  • Will they meet you at the coffee shop?
  • They will not meet you at the coffee shop.
