What is the future will continuous tense?
Like all continuous tenses, the future will continuous (also called the future progressive in American English) is used to express the idea of an action in progress.
The future will continuous has four distinct uses.
What is the first use of future will continuous?
Future will continuous is used to describe a predicted interruption to a future action.
I am sure I will be eating dinner when you call.
John – “What will you be doing when I am in work tomorrow?”
Mary – “I will be skiing in Italy”
When we use future will continuous to express an interrupted future action we have to use two actions and we must use two different tenses, future will continuous and the present simple.
Future will continuous is used to express the main action, the action that will be in progress, and the present simple is used to express the short action that will interrupt the main action.
I will be eating – The main action, the action in progress — expressed in future will continuous.
When you call – The short action, the interrupting action — expressed in present simple.
The main action is always the first action in chronological order and the interrupting action is always second action in chronological order.
When we use future will continuous to express an interrupted action we can change the word order without changing the chronological order.
I will be eating dinner when you call. – The first action in chronological order is, eating dinner and the second action in chronological order is, your call.
When you call I will be eating dinner. – The first action in chronological order is, eating dinner and the second action in chronological order is, your call.
Why change the word order?
We might change the word order to highlight the second action because the speaker might think the second action is more important.
When do I use when, and when do I use while in future will continuous?
If the verb is in the present simple, use when – When you call.
If the verb is in future will continuous, use while – While I was eating dinner.
What is the second use of future will continuous?
Future will continuous is used to describe a future action in progress at a specific time.
At 9 AM tomorrow morning I will be driving to work.
We will be watching the Eurovision at 10 PM on Saturday.
Like the first use of the present continuous, this use also has the idea of an interruption in the action.
The action – driving to work or watching the Eurovision – will already be happening at the time we are talking about.
What is the third use of future will continuous?
Future will continuous is used to describe when two or more actions will happen at the same time.
Tonight I will be making dinner and John will be studding.
When we go to the meeting, she will be talking and you will be listening.
The actions must be happening at the same time
What is the fourth use of future will continuous?
Future will continuous is used to make word pictures.
We can use this use to imagine a future.
In the future, robots will control the world, people will be living underground, and fighting machines, the sun won’t be shining and it will be raining all the time.
When we use future will continuous to describe word pictures, the speaker and listener can see the actions happening in their minds.
Future will continuous is used to:
- Express an interrupted future action.
- Express a future action in progress at a specific time.
- Express when two (or more) future actions happened at the same time.
- To create word pictures.
How do I construct future will continuous?
Future will continuous is very easy to construct.
Subject + will + be + verb+ing + the object of the sentence.
Mary will be walking home at 9 PM tonight.
Subject + won’t (will not) + be + verb+ing + the object of the sentence.
You won’t be watching the movie tonight.
Will + subject + be + verb+ing + object of the question.
Will you be watching TV tonight?

Una de las cuestiones más importantes del español es utilizar correctamente los verbos SER y ESTAR.
Esta diferencia no existe en ningún idioma, no existe en inglés ni en francés, etc.
En algunas situaciones es muy sencillo utilizarlo bien, existen unas reglas concretas, pero en otros casos es un verdadero rompecabezas.
Pero en este caso SmartLanguagSolutions tu va a ayudar a saber cuándo utilizar uno u otro.
En ocasiones es muy sencillo, sólo hay que aplicar la siguiente regla
Con «SER» describimos las características de una persona o cosa.
El coche es rojo.
Para saber una hora, una fecha o un precio:
El precio del libro es 20€.
Cuando estamos hablando de una propiedad:
El ordenador es suyo.
¿Cuando utilizamos “estar”?
Lo utilizamos cuando estamos hablando de una localización.
La cuchara está en el cajón.
Cuando hablamos de un estado temporal el cual puede cambiar en cualquier momento.
Cuando hablamos sobre actividades que ocurren en un momento determinado.
Ahora estoy caminando.
Estas son resumidas las reglas que te pueden orientar para la utilización de estos verbos pero hay casos un poco más complicados en los que determinados adjetivos pueden variar su contexto si los utilizamos con un verbo o con otro, por lo que si los utilizamos mal puede causarnos confusión.
Como por ejemplo:
Llegas tarde al encuentro, y al verla le preguntas:
1. ¿Eres lista ?
2. ¿Estás lista ? (Frase correcta)
¡Hay una gran diferencia!
“Ser listo”: significa “ser inteligente”
“estar listo-a” significa “estar preparado”.
Cuando llegáis al cine, tu novia decide invitarte, ¿Qué le dices tú?
1. ¡Muchas gracias! ¡Estás muy buena!
2. ¡Muchas gracias! ¡Eres muy buena! (Frase correcta)
La primera frase hace alusión a el cuerpo de una persona. “Estar bueno, -a” significa “ser atractivo”, tiene un aspecto bueno. La segunda frase, “Ser bueno” se refiere al carácter de una persona. “Tú eres una buena persona.”
Mientras estáis viendo la película la ves bostezando y le preguntas:
1. ¡Eres aburrida!
2. ¡Estás aburrida! (Frase correcta)
La primera frase, “Ser aburrida” significa: que la forma de ser, el carácter de una persona es aburrido en general. La segunda que “estar aburrida” en ese momento porque la película no le parece entretenida.
Cuando viajes a España tienes que tener mucho cuidado con el uso de estos verbos. A continuación te ofrecemos un listado de otros casos parecidos:
Ser frío: el carácter de la persona; Estar frío: por el consecuente descenso de las temperaturas
Ser malo: una persona que no es buena; Estar malo: enfermo
Ser pesado: estar encima de algo para conseguirlo; Estar pesada: con unos kilos de más
Ser verde: que es un mal hablado; Estar verde: ser inmaduro o no tener conocimiento de algo

Here at Smart Language Solutions we love the way language evolves, and we think slang is the most interesting example of language evolution.
Is slang rude and/or vulgar?
Yes and no.
Of course some slang terms can be rude and vulgar, and some slang terms can be “clean”.
In fact even the rude and vulgar terms can be used in a manner that does not cause offense, a typical example is the “f” word.
In Britian this word is considered offensive by most people no matter the context.
However, just across the Irish sea in Ireland the “f” word can be used in a non-vulgar manner, to the extent that you might hear it on talk radio at any time of the day.
If you want to improve your English we suggest the following two options, one choose an online language exchange site like ours.
On our site you can find online language exchange partners to practice your second language.
Two you could try listening to online English language talk radio.
Before you tune into English language talk radio, you should note that some channels broadcast their content based on the political ideology (left or right) of the station owner.
Here are some stations you could listen to online:
RTE (Ireland) Newstalk (Ireland) Radio 5 Live (UK) Radio 4 (UK) LBC (UK) NPR (USA) ABC (Australia) CBC (Canada)
Can slang can cause both native and non-native speakers problems?
Yes, and here are some reasons slang terms can cause problems:
Some slang phrases are only used in one English speaking country and not others.
Some slang phrases are only used in limited parts of some countries and are so local they might be completely incomprehensible to anyone from outside the area.
And some slang phrases have different meanings in different counties, for example the slang word “pissed” means angry in American English and drunk in British English.
In American they say:
Speaker one: “John was so pissed last night”
Speaker two: “Yes, I have never seen him so angry”
In Britian and Ireland they say:
Speaker one: “John was so pissed last night”
Speaker two: “Yes, I have never seen him drink so much beer, he must have a big hangover today”
One thing we love at Smart Language Solutions is learning new slang phrases especially local slang phrases.
That’s why we want to help you to better understand the non-vulgar Irish slang phrase “ ah here”.
What is the correct pronunciation of «Ah» in the phrase?
The correct way to pronounce the “Ah” is to use the same “a” sound from the following words “Alphabet” and “Addiction”.
What is the meaning of here?
Here can be used as an adverb, a noun, an adjective, an interjection and in many idioms.
As an adverb it is used to suggest a place, “put your coat here”.
As a noun it is used to suggest a locality, “I live a short distance from here”.
As an adjective it is used to suggest emphasis, «Look at this book, here»
As an interjection it is used to get attention, «Here! Listen to me»
However, we think you should check all 18 meanings/uses of here by clicking…here!
In Ireland when they put ah + here together in the same sentence they could mean a number of different things.
It is slang after all!
The slang term, ah here is used to express a strong disagreement with the statements of other people.
For example, two people are having an argument and one person makes a statement that the other strongly disagrees with, that speaker can use ah here to emphasis their disagreement.
Speaker One – “I know Brexit will be great for Ireland”
Speaker Two – “Ah here, that’s complete nonsense”
Ah here can also be used to express frustration, especially when one speaker thinks the other is lying.
Speaker one – “I did not fight with your brother last night!”
Speaker two – “Ah here that’s a lie, I have mobile phone video of you and my brother fighting.”
When combined with “leave it out” ah here is used to make a very strong suggestion for someone to stop doing something.
Speaker one – “Just look at how fast I can accelerate my car from 100KM to 150KM”
Speaker two – “Ah here leave it out, we are in 50KM zone”
Before you read on, remember after you have read this blog you will find a fun quiz at the bottom of the page that will test what you have learnt!
The Irish slang phrase, ah here, is used to express disagreement, frustration, or a desire for someone to stop doing something.
Now you know the meaning of ah here, the question has to be:
How can I safely practice using this and other slang phrases?
There are many ways to practice using your language skills, for example you could travel to the country where they speak your second language as their first language, and immerse yourself in the environment.
However this is not always practical, or cheap.
You could attend your local language school and take some language lessons.
This is a great option, but you are limited to following the curriculum of the language school, and may never get a chance for free speaking during lesson time.
Here at Smart Language Solutions we suggest the best way to improve the second language you want to learn is to use our language exchange website.
What is language exchange?
Language exchange is where two or more people with different native languages meet to practice each other’s languages in a safe, fun and non-judgmental environment.
However a big problem with traditional language exchange is it can be difficult to find people in your town or city who are happy to meet you and exchange languages.
That is why we created Smart Language Solutions, the online language exchange website.
What is an online language exchange website?
An online language exchange website is a place for people who want to improve their second or third language by speaking with native speakers and virtually immersing themselves in the culture without ever leaving home!
Elena lives in Moscow and is an executive at a large international accounting company, she wants to improve her English and French for work.
Isabel lives in Montpelier and wants to practice Russian for fun.
Mark lives in Dublin and will be transferred by his company to Moscow in 6 months for a year, and he wants to improve his Russian.
Elena, Isabel and Mark all have accounts on the Smart Language Solutions language exchange website, where they use the search function to find each other.
Elena asks Isabel to help her improve her intermediate level French and Isabel gets Elena to help her with her Russian pronunciation.
Elena improves her business English with Mark, and then helps Mark improve his Russian language and understanding of Moscow culture.
Why should I use Smart Language Solutions for my language exchange?
We offer safe and secure video, voice and text chat.
