Future simple (will)
The future simple tense is usually formed with will + bare infinitive (I will do, he will try).
Affirmative: I will read (I'll read), He will come (He'll come)
Negative: I will not read (I won't read), He will not come (He won't come)
Questions: Will you read?
Negative questions: Will you not come? (Won't you come?)
We can also use shall in the first person singular and plural (I, we). But it is quite formal in modern English and not very common.
I shall do it for you. We shall come soon.
The future simple tense is used:
1. For general intentions (to talk about things someone will probably do).
He will change his job.
We'll travel abroad.
I will not need it.
They won't change the telephone number.
Will you take the exam?
But: We are going to travel abroad.
Going to is used to talk about definite plans that we made beforehand.
2. For predictions or opinions (we suppose that something will or will not happen).
It will snow in winter.
The horse will not win.
It is typically used with verbs or adverbs such as think, be sure, hope, believe, suppose, perhaps, possibly, probably, surely.
They'll probably study at university.
I don't think she'll accept it.
3. For a decision or an offer made at the moment of speaking.
Can I walk you home? - No, thank you. I'll take a taxi.
Please, tell Peter about it. - O.K. I'll call him.
But: I am going to call Peter. Do you want me to say hello to him? (Going to shows our decision made before the moment of speaking.)
