What you will learn
Will you attend the forthcoming Gallery Teachers Masterclass on future forms in English? Are you keeping Friday afternoon on September 15th free as a result? Are you going to use this opportunity to undertake some valuable CPD? Hopefully so!
You may even have noticed how we have played with three ways of talking about the future to begin this introduction to our masterclass on future forms! In fact, if you were to ask learners or teachers of English which aspects of grammar provide the most challenge, it is likely that a large number would give the answer “future forms”. Futurity is a highly nuanced area of English grammar and all too often, speakers resort to the will future, perhaps believing that this corresponds more closely than in fact it does to a so-called future tense in their L1. The problem is that there is no future tense in English; instead English makes use of verb forms and lexical phrases to express subtleties of meaning.
This workshop reviews some of the reasons why will is misused so frequently in this respect and then provides a brief demonstration of two contrasting future forms, in order to make some observations on how we can best approach this area of grammar. Come along, prepare to be challenged and enlightened – you will/are going to have a great afternoon!
