  • Hi, everybody.

  • I'm Esther.

  • For this checkup let's take a look at the will usage for the future simple tense.

  • The first example says, 'Jen and Paul [blank] home soon'

  • with the verb 'go'.

  • Remember, when using 'will' for the future simple tense,

  • it doesn't matter what the subject is.

  • We say 'will' and then the base verb.

  • So here we can say, 'Jen and Paul' or 'They will go home soon'.

  • 'I [blank] a scientist after I graduate.'

  • Try filling in the blank with 'be'.

  • Again, we simply say 'will be'.

  • 'I will be a scientist after I graduate.'

  • Now try this one, 'We [blank] that because it smells bad.'

  • I want you to use the negative form with the verb 'eat'.

  • Here we say, 'will not eat' or remember we can use the contraction 'won't'.

  • 'We will not eat that' or 'We won't eat that because it smells bad'.

  • Now look for the mistake in this sentence.

  • 'I will eat a pizza for lunch.'

  • Remember, we need the base form of the verb.

  • 'I will eat a pizza for lunch.'

  • 'Angie and I will playing a game.'

  • Again we need the base form of the verb.

  • Angie and I will play a game.'

  • And finally, 'Will she be cook dinner?'

  • This is a question.

  • However we need to say, 'Will she cook dinner.'

  • We do not need a 'be' verb here.

  • Let's move on.

  • Let's practice the 'be going to' usage of the future simple tense.

  • 'We [blank] going to _blank_ soccer.'

  • I want you to use the verb 'watch'.

  • Remember, for 'be going to' in the future simple tense,

  • we start with the subject and then the 'be' verb.

  • The subject here is 'we'.

  • So we need the 'be' verb – 'are'.

  • 'We are going to' and then the base verb 'watch'.

  • 'We are going to watch soccer.'

  • 'I [blank] going to [blank].'

  • The verb is 'talk'.

  • And I want you to use the negative form.

  • In this case, the subject is 'I'.

  • And so I use the 'be' verb – 'am'.

  • 'I am' and then we need 'not'.

  • 'I am not going to'

  • Then the base verb 'talk'.

  • 'Why [blank] you going to [blank]?'

  • The verb here is 'go'.

  • In a question, especially a 'WH' question, we start with the 'WH' word,

  • and then the 'be' verb.

  • 'are' is the correct 'be' verb because the subject is 'you'.

  • Then we have 'going to'.

  • And again, the base form of the verb.

  • 'Why are you going to go?'

  • Now try to find the mistake in the next sentence.

  • 'You are going to studying at home.'

  • Can you find the mistake?

  • 'You are going to' that's correct.

  • But we need the base form of the verb.

  • 'You are going to study at home.'

  • 'You will be going to learn English.'

  • 'You will be going'

  • That sounds a little strange.

  • Remember, we don't need the 'will' here.

  • We're using 'be going to' and we need to change the 'be' verb to match the subject.

  • 'You are going to learn English'.

  • Or remember, you can also say, 'You will learn English.

  • and finally 'Is he going to do play soccer.'

  • uh-oh We have two verbs here.

  • 'Is he going to' - that's correct.

  • But we have 'do' and 'play'.

  • We don't need both, so we say, 'Is he going to play soccer?'

  • Great job everybody.

  • Let's move on.

  • Great job, everyone.

  • You now have a better understanding of the future simple tense.

  • There's still a lot of practice you need to do because this tense is so important.

  • Keep studying and I'll see you in the next video.

Hi, everybody.
