This is a difficult question. There are many different rules regarding this matter. Generally, 'will' denotes future actions and states.
One more things i am confused with is will and would.When do we use will and would?
I will be back tomorrow.'Will' also introduces repeated actions in the present, see here: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...s-present.html
'Would' can mean different things. It can mean the future in the past:
He said he would be back next day.We don't say:
*He said he will be back next day. It's incorrect, because he said that in the past. 'Will' cannot be used. We use 'would'.
'Would' can mean past repeated actions.
When I was a child I would go to school everyday.That's not all, but I think it's enough
I am not a teacher and can be wrong somewhere.
