Student or Learner
Please explain me the next sentences:
1."I hope that I find one soon."
"I hope that I will find one soon"
2. "Great! When are you moving in?"
"Great! When will you move in?"
I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
When are you moving in? is an interrogative form of the present continuous tense. One use of the present continuous is to express something about the near future.
You may use "will" in "I hope that I will find one soon." It's optional. In most cases, most Anglophones would use the present simple and omit that, leaving Charlie's suggestion, "I hope I find one soon." Like the present continuous, the present simple can apply to the near future.
