    Why Present Continuous?

    I was trying to improve my grammar knowledge by doing some exercises, when I came across this sentence. The answer key says the form 'am staying' should be used. My initial choice was 'will be staying'.
    Can both be used?

    I (stay) here for at least another year before I return home.

    The sentence was a part of the following text:

    Well, it worked. I (live) have been living and (study) studying in the U.S. for more than two years. I (stay) here for at least another year before I return home. By then, I should be completely fluent.

    Thank you!
