Sorry for taking so long to reply. Some of our messages got lost in cyberspace. One of our ESL/EFL teachers should be by shortly to help you with your question.

In my opinion, there is no problem. English has a future tense, like most other modern languages.

The problems occur because we have many ways of talking about the future- will\going to\present simple and progressive, etc.

Students need practice in different situations to get used to choosing the most appropriate form for different contexts.
