    Question Will be + ing / Will be

    Greeting Friends! :)

    I need help in a sentence. The sentence is "Sam will be trained by a tennis coach in Canada for his role."

    Can anyone please explain, why "Will be trained" is written? I'm expecting it to be "Will be training".

    Thanks in advance

    Re: Will be + ing / Will be

    Sam will be training for his role: Active - Sam will be training, possibly without anybody's help. Train is used intransitively here, with a progressive form of the verb.

    Sam will be trained by a coach for his role: Passive - the coach will train Sam. Train is used transitively here, with a non-progressive form of the verb.

    Sam will be being trained by a coach for his role: Passive and progressive. The coach will be training Sam. Train is used transitively.
