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.
