    Re: Progressive Future

    The future continuous aspect is made up of the future simple aspect of the auxiliary verb to be + present participle.

    mostly

    will be + present participle

    sometimes

    shall be + present participle

    will be + present participle is always the future continuous aspect.

    The form is usually used with a point in time. In two hours, I'll be sleeping.
    This time tomorrow I will not be writing my the very next post to the forum for I am going to do it in the morning.


    It will be raining tomorrow. statement pointed to time in the future.

    Will you be staying with us? There are a lot of learners on here, you, me and the many others.

    It seems the only use mentioned, is the future continuous.

    You're welcome!

    In addition I found something interesting in your reply that I put in bold.

    So the use of the plural (replies) in such case emphasis that the post had been treated the way which satiesfies the post's writer the most what is very polite.

    Dear teachers does this my thinking have any pattern to a proper seeing the plural replies used in such case?
