Will for Future Predictions- Things in Common
Make predictions about yourself that you think might also be true for your partner. You get
one point each time that they say “Me too”/ “So will I”/ “Me neither”/ “Neither will I” etc (you
can also use negative sentences). If your partner would use a different prediction phrase,
e.g. “could” rather than “will probably”, it doesn’t count as one point. To make sure you are
using the right kind of future forms, don’t talk about your arrangements, your plans, etc,
only things that you imagine about your future life.
