March 26, 2018: After discussing Present Continuous Tense and Past Continuous Tense with examples, it is time to focus on .

Future Continuous  Tense (also referred as Future Progressive Tense) indicates about some actions or events that will take place in future and expected to continue for some time.

Let’s consider an example :

I will go to cinema tomorrow.

The above sentence is in Simple Future Tense. It will become future continuous if say, some events take place for an expected duration.

Example:  I will be viewing movies. You will be participating in a competition tomorrow. He will be playing football in upcoming tournament. They will be making dinner for us tomorrow.

The general form of Future Continuous Tense is : (for positive sentence)

Subject + (Shall/will) + be + present participle (the root verb in present tense + ing)

In case of negative sentences, ‘Not’ needs to be added after auxiliary verb (Will/Shall) and rest of the form shall remain unchanged.

The general form of negative sentences is :

Subject + (Shall/will) + NOT + be + present participle (the root verb in present tense + ing)

Example: I will NOT be viewing movies.  He will NOT be playing in next world cup football.

There will be positional change in case of Interrogative sentences to indicate Future Continuous Tense.

The general form is : WILL + Subject + be + present participle (the root verb in present tense + ing)

Example: Will he be playing in next tournament? Will the boys be taking lesson seriously?
