New Year Future Continuous/ State Verbs 

Worksheet 2- State Verbs Grammar Presentation 

Some of the verbs on Worksheet 1 were not used in the Future Perfect Continuous because they are State 

Verbs that cannot take –ing. Without looking back at Worksheet 1, cross out the forms below that are not 

correct because the –ing form is impossible (the Will + Infinitiuve form is always okay) 

I’ll think about/ I’ll be thinking about________________________________________ 


I’ll worry about/ I’ll be worrying about_______________________________________ 


I’ll live in/ I’ll be living in ___________________________________ 


I’ll plan to/ I’ll be planning to ___________________________ 


I’ll wear/ I’ll be wearing ____________________________________ 


I’ll weigh/ I’ll be wearing _____________________________________ 


I’ll feel/ I’ll be feeling _________________________________ 


I’ll have/ I’ll be having _______________________________________   


I’ll want/ I’ll be wanting _______________________________________ 


I’ll belong to/ I’ll be belonging to ___________________________________ 


I’ll look/ I’ll be looking ________________________________________   


I’ll practice/ I’ll be practising ________________________________________ 


I’ll prepare/ I’ll be preparing for _____________________________________ 

Check your answers with Worksheet 1. If there is no –ing form on Worksheet 1 it is incorrect for that 

meaning of the verb and should be crossed out on Worksheet 2 (but see alternative meanings below) 


What is the difference in meaning between the following verbs? 

I’ll have two cats/ I’ll be having a shower 

I’ll look quite a lot older/ I’ll be looking at the Eiffel Tower
