Have you noticed I’ve stopped using the word ‘tense’? We don’t want to be ‘tense’. When you talk about the future, it should be a treat. I’m reminded of a great candy I had as a child, called Now-a-Laters. They were this gooey block candy of about eight or ten pieces. Now, you can carve up time in about as many pieces as you would like, some say there are twenty-four English tenses, some say twelve and some say there are only six (there is an ongoing debate and you can google it if you’re interested). My goal is to give you a pack of Now-a-Laters that you can use immediately and enjoy. If you would like a more in-depth study of the future aspects, go to the excellent ESL site I’ve listed at the end of my post. Have a great day. And that’s really great, not great like really crap!
Thank you for going through what I consider to be the eight best time aspects to know really well. If you would like a more thorough lesson on grammar and tenses of the future, please visit, http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/english-grammar/verbs/talking-about-future. I hope you’ve enjoyed this business grammar boot camp and stay with me, and we’ll continue our look at learning Business English easily, using humour. -B
