I’m now very confused about using “Present countinious” and “Future continious” to express the future !...
For example :
I’m going to school
I will be going to school
Can you show me the difference and when we can use them ?
Present continuous.. action, happening NOW, today, this moment.
I am writing this sentence.
I am typing.
I am sitting at my computer.
You are reading these words.
You are learning English.
I am getting sleeply.
Future... action, NOT happening today, WILL happen in future.
I will go to work tomorrow at six.
I will eat lunch with a friend.
I will listen to the radio at work.
I will eat.... a salad for lunch tomorrow.
I will drink too much Diet Coke tomorrow.
Future Continuous. Same as Future, BUT for some reason, I want to talk about the TIME PERIOD during that action.
I will be working at seven. (The future tense told you that I will go to work at six. But here, I want to tell you that at seven, work will be happening.. at that time, I will be working, work will be happening.)
I will be eating lunch when you call. (DURING the time I eat lunch, you will call.)
I will be listening to the radio while I work. (The time period that I listen to the radio will be happening while I work.)
I will be eating a salad while you will be hungry. (During the time you are hungry, during that time period, I will spend the time eating my salad.)
I will be finishing my work at five. (When the clock turns five, I will be doing the action of 'finishing my work.)
