I'm confused when to use the present tense and when to use the future tense.
If you ask him, he'll give you the paper
If you ask him, he gives you the paper
Is the following correcgt?
It's not the last day of school, just the last class
Before the class starts, Mr. Brown says
Mr. Bown:This is the last class
This will be the last class
Note: I'm not an English teacher
- The conditional "if" makes sense just with with the sentence "If you ask him he will give you the paper.....". It is something that will be done( in the future) "if" a a given requisite(ask him) is done now.
- "It is not the last day of school, just the last class", makes perfect sense to me.
- "This is the last class" is correct. "This will be the last class" does not sound right to me. The class is already taking place (because of the "this"),so I see no sense in the use of future.
