  • Hi, everybody.

  • I'm Esther.

  • Let's start a checkup for the future continuous tense.

  • Take a look at the first sentence.

  • It says, 'They _blank_ at school tomorrow.'

  • I want you to use 'will' and then the verb 'study', for this tense.

  • Remember, in the future continuous tense,

  • no matter what the subject, we say 'will be' and then verb +ing.

  • So the correct answer for this sentence is 'they will be studying'

  • 'They will be studying at school tomorrow.'

  • The next sentence says.

  • 'Jesse _blank_ a TV show later.'

  • Here, instead of 'will' try to use 'be going to be'.

  • 'Jesse _blank_ watch a TV show later.'

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

  • So, Jessie is a 'he' or it can be a 'she'.

  • Sometimes the name is used for a boy or a girl.

  • Either way I need to use the 'be' verb – 'is'.

  • 'Jesse is going to be'

  • and then we need verb +ing.

  • 'Jesse is going to be watching a TV show later.'

  • The next sentence, I want you to find the mistake.

  • 'We willn't be studying at the library today.'

  • 'We will not …'

  • What's the contraction for 'will not'?

  • Well it definitely isn't 'willn't'.

  • The contraction is 'won't'.

  • 'We won't be studying at the library today.'

  • And finally, 'Sally and I will be meet our friends soon.'

  • Remember, we need 'will be' and then verb +ing.

  • So the correct answer is,

  • 'Sally and I will be meeting our friends soon.'

  • Good job, everyone.

  • Let's move on.

  • Now, let's move on to the next checkup of the future continuous tense.

  • Take a look at the first sentence.

  • It says, 'He _blank_ at the door when the movie ends.'

  • I want you to use 'will' and the verb 'wait'.

  • Remember, for this tense, we need 'will be' and then verb +ing,

  • so the correct answer is,

  • 'He will be waiting at the door when the movie ends.'

  • The next sentence says, 'We are not …' so this is a negative,

  • '_blank_ the play when he performs'.

  • Here, instead of 'will', I want you to use 'be going to be' and the verb 'see'.

  • We already have part of that phrase for you.

  • 'We are …', here's the 'be' verb, 'not'

  • so this is negative.

  • And then we say 'going to be'

  • and then verb +ing.

  • 'We are not going to be seeing the play when he performs.'

  • Now find the mistake in this sentence.

  • 'They won't be stay at home when the delivery man visits.'

  • 'They won't be'

  • That's correct in the negative form.

  • However, we need verb +ing.

  • 'They won't be staying at home when the delivery man visits.'

  • And finally, 'Terry is going to working when the manager arrives'.

  • 'Terry' is a 'he' or 'she' so 'is' is the correct 'be' verb to use.

  • 'going to' that's also correct.

  • What we're missing here is 'be'.

  • 'Terry is going to be working when the manager arrives.'

  • Good job, everybody.

  • Let's move on.

  • Now, you have a better understanding of the future continuous tense.

  • Please take some time to study and practice this tense as it is very important.

  • I know English can be a struggle, but don't worry, I'm here for you.

  • And I believe in you.

  • I'll see you in the next video.

Hi, everybody.
