How do we say or talk about events that have not taken place yet but will take place later? We use the simple future tense to describe such events. It expresses a future event or state of being.
event: I will go for a walk after dinner.
state of being: I will be a legend.
This tense is used to talk about facts or events of certainty that will begin in the future and also end in there. In simpler terms, it is used to talk about things that haven’t happened yet.
An extra verb ‘will’ or ‘shall’ is added in front of the root form of the verb for future tense.
I will eat two small sandwiches.
We will sleep in the afternoon.
As we can see in the examples above, the subject can be singular or plural but the treatment does not change.
