    to be happen any time soon

    Are these sentences correct?
    I don't anticipate this to be happen any time soon.
    I wonder whether this is going to be happen any time soon.

    See above. You seem to think that "to be happen" is a verb. It is not. The verb is simply "to happen".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    What about the following sentence?
    I don't anticipate/expect this will happen until 2018.
    Is the next sentence wrong?
    I don't expect this to happen until 2018.

    Both are correct.
