Future Continuous Tense

How do we make the Future Continuous Tense?

The structure of the future continuous tense is:

subject + auxiliary verb WILL + auxiliary verb BE + main verb (ing form)
For negative sentences in the future continuous tense, we insert not between will and be. For question sentences, we exchange the subject and will. Look at these example sentences with the future continuous tense:

subject _____ auxiliary verb _____ auxiliary verb _____ main verb

+ _____ I __________ will _____________ be __________ working at 10am.
+ ____ You ________ will _____________ be __________ lying on a beach tomorrow.
- ____ She ________ will not ___________ be __________ using the car.
- ____ We ________ will not ___________ be __________having dinner at home.
? ____ Will you ______________________ be __________ playing football?
? ____ Will they _____________________ be __________ watching TV?

When we use the future continuous tense in speaking, we often contract the subject and will:

I will ____ I'll
you will ____ you'll
he will ____ he'll
she will ____ she'll
it will ____ it'll
we will ____ we'll
they will ____ they'll

We sometimes use shall instead of will, especially for I and we.

How do we use the Future Continuous Tense?

The future continuous tense expresses action at a particular moment in the future. The action will start before that moment but it will not have finished at that moment. For example, tomorrow I will start work at 2pm and stop work at 6pm:

At 4pm tomorrow, I will be working.

When we use the future continuous tense, our listener usually knows or understands what time we are talking about. Look at these examples:

I will be playing tennis at 10am tomorrow.
They won't be watching TV at 9pm tonight.
What will you be doing at 10pm tonight?
What will you be doing when I arrive?
She will not be sleeping when you telephone her.
We 'll be having dinner when the film starts.
Take your umbrella. It will be raining when you return.
