I've never heard of 'present future' or 'present future continuous'. Where did you read about them?
Student or Learner
I'm confused about these two tenses (future and future continuous), what is the difference between them? For example: I will be waiting for him when his plane arrives tonight. (Future continuous)
For the sentence above, why don't we just use "I will wait for him when his plane arrives tonight." (Future)
Your reply will be very helpful for me, thank you..

Yes, Harum30, it can be rather confusing at first. Generally, doing tests or quizes develops a better understanding of how grammar works. You can try this one or google yourself for more. You might also find this grammar book quite helpful (p195 #220 to be more specific)
ps. And, be warned! just to make it a bit more challenging, some teachers/grammarians prefer 'progressive' to 'continuous' meaning the same.
