Will be +v3 vs will be + ing?

Today I’d lượt thích lớn write about the difference between two grammar forms that are about the future: “will” & “will be” + ing. Generally, we use “will” to lớn talk about future events in general, but we use “will be” + ing when we want khổng lồ focus on a specific time or event in the future. For example:

A: What will you bởi vì tomorrow?

B: I’ll work tomorrow.

Bạn đang xem: Will be +v3 vs will be + ing?

_________________________________________________________________

A: What will you be doing at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow?

B: I’ll be working at that time.

So, in this case, the two speakers are focusing on the specific time of 2:00 and contrasting that with what will happen during the whole day.

However, we can also say something like:

A: What will you be doing tomorrow?

B: I’ll be working all day tomorrow.

In this case, the speakers are focusing on tomorrow as a unit of time & contrasting that with what will happen during the whole week or month.

Here are some other ways in which we use “will” & “will be” + ing when talking about the future:

I’ll probably be asleep by the time you get home page, so please don’t make too much noise.

I’ll probably be sleeping by the time you get trang chủ, so please don’t make too much noise.

I will have sầu a meeting with my boss tomorrow about my business trip.

When you get up tomorrow, I’ll be talking with my trùm about my business trip.

The plane will land soon, so please fasten your seatbelts.

We will be landing in about fifteen minutes, so please fasten your seatbelts.

We can also use “will be” + ing khổng lồ talk about future events which are already fixed or decided. For example:

A: What will you be doing at the conference?

B: I’ll be giving a presentation about our new product.

I’ll be working at our new branch tomorrow, so you can reach me there.

My husb& got a promotion at work. From now on, he’ll be heading the sale department at his company.

So, in these cases, the sự kiện has already been decided on in the past, và now it is a firm plan.

Hello.I found your Blog by your twitter and I’ve sầu read your lesson.I’m a Japanese. May I ask you some questions? When the speakers are focusing on the specific time, they use “will+ be + ~ing”. So, it’s strange to say “What will you be doing tomorrow?” I need to add the words that show specific time và situation. Is it right? I often use “be going khổng lồ do” khổng lồ talk about the future. I learned “be going khổng lồ do” express the future with a definite plan. I guess “I’ll be working at that time” & “I’m going to lớn work at that time” have almost same meaning. Are there any different points between them? I’m interested in your Blog.I’m glad if you allow me to lớn ask you questions about your blog.
