future continuous lesson cover

Learn how to use the future continuous tense in English

The first continuous tense is used to describe events that will happen at a specific time in the future or events that will last for a long time in the future.

This grammar tense always uses will be plus the present participle of an action verb. A present participle is a base verb with an -ing added to the end (e.g. going, seeing, meeting). Sometimes, this tense is called the future progressive but either term refers to the same purpose: indicating an ongoing action in the future.
