Practice your English speaking skills with this list of simple future questions. Using the future tense to discuss future scenarios is an important step in every ESL student’s journey to English fluency.
Remember: in English, we use the simple future tense to discuss actions and events that will happen in the future.
This tense is formed by adding “will” or “be going to” before the base form of the verb. For example, “I will study for my exam tomorrow.” or “I am going to go to the movies next weekend.”
