This course will first teach you how to use the Present Continuous for Future to talk about things you plan to do and about to do in the future. The course will cover the Present Simple to talk about scheduled or fixed events in the future. You will learn how to use 'going + to' when you are going to, intend to, or are planning to do something. The course will also teach you how to use "will" when you ask, promise, agree and offer to do something.

You will then learn how to use 'shall' instead of 'will' when you are offering a suggestion such as "Shall I make you a cup of coffee?'. The course will also teach you how to use 'if' instead of 'when' to talk about the future and for things that are less certain to happen such as 'They may cancel the concert if it's raining'. You will also learn that you should not use 'will' to talk about arrangements for the future.
