Once again, if the tense is called Simple, this is extremely easy; so do not worry.
To make a phrase in Future Simple we need two Simple steps:
- We take “will” (I, you, we, they, she, he will = ’ll /will not = won’t)
- The old form “shall” for the pronouns I and we can exist in the speech of elder folks on equal terms
- We add infinitive of the main verb
It will be alright!
We need Future Simple to speak about:
- Our intentions (not pre-arranged intentions and plans)
- Decisions that were made in the moment of speaking (I will/I think I will)
- Offer of doing something for someone (I will do it for you)
- I’ll do it for you. – Thank you, you will help me.
- Will you work in the afternoon? – I don’t think so.
- He says he will not eat; he dislikes fish.
- She won’t answer even tomorrow. Look at her: we can’t make her change her mind.
- We think we will not (=won’t) go there with you. We have a lot to do at home.
