Grade 6 Grammar Lesson 5 Expressing the future (0)

We usually use the simple future tense (will/ shall + verb) to express the future as a fact, especially for actions we can’t control.

We use the simple future to say what we think or believe will happen in the future. We say: I think, I expect, I hope, I’m sure, I believe….

We also use will to express a decision we make for the first time.
