    Smile Future continuous tense

    If I were doing some work the past day and still have some work pending, Can I say "I will be continuing working on the task"?
    I know I can say "I will be working on the task" but I intend to say I am going to work on the pending tasks. So I would like to know if the above sentence is correct or not. Or an alternative sentence is also much appreciated. Thank you.

    Re: Future continuous tense

    'I will continue working on...'

    OR:

    'I will be continuing work on...'

    You can. J&K Tutoring's suggestions are better.
